Samuel Hadida, the producer behind the Resident Evil
films, has secured the rights to adapt Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Roger Avary, who worked with Hadida on Silent Hill
, is attached to write and direct the film. Also under Avary's belt are writing credits Beowulf
(which is being adapted into a game by Ubisoft
), The Rules of Attraction
and a little film called Pulp Fiction
. He gets SPOnG's vote - well, some of it; some of us think that Pulp Fiction
is in fact horribly overrated, cacked-out, tedium.
?I?ve been playing the character of B.J. Blazkowicz since the epic Wolfenstein 3D
first bruised my brain and have ever since wanted to bring his adventures to life on the big screen,? Avary said. ?It?s time to bust some dams, storm some bunkers and blow up some bridges.?
The bunkers and dams in question would be back in the dark days of World War II. The game stars William J ?BJ? Blazkowicz as he battles a Nazi war machine that's taken to Bio engineering and dabbling in the occult. You can find out more on SPOnG's dedicated game page
SPOnG's vote for playing Blazkowicz goes to The Rock. Either him, or Jason Statham. Not that we're bitter that he isn't playing Agent 47 in the Hitman movie.Return to Castle Wolfenstein
joins an ever-growing list of games getting adapted into film. As well as those already mentioned, God of War
is getting the big screen treatment and the third instalment in the Resident Evil
, is on the way.Source: Variety
