We haven't really heard news on the God of War movie for a few years, ever since Universal secured the movie rights from Sony. Set in ancient Greece, God of War follows the battles of the warrior Kratos, who tackles mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra on his quest to find Pandora's Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.

There has no date been set to start shooting, let alone an estimated theatrical launch.
