God of War movie confirmed?

In a recent MGM press release, the news of a movie based on the God of War series might have been let out of the bag accidentally. The press release was regarding the new Robocop flick, but it also had this little factoid attached to it; “David Self’s credits include 13 Days and Road To Perdition. He wrote God of War for Universal, to which Brett Ratner is attached to direct, and was a writer on Universal’s Wolfman currently in production.” Interesting, no?
