Brett Ratner Confirmed To Direct God Of War?

Back in May, rumors ran wild that Brett Ratner might be directing a big screen adaptation of the popular video game series God of War. Bad news for video game fans, today's MGM press release for the Robocop reboot contained the following juicy tidbit:

"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."

Is this official confirmation that Ratner is officially attached to the project? We hope not.
