Roger Avary, the co-writer of cult classic film Pulp Fiction, has confirmed that he’s going to write and direct a movie adaptation of the iconic Castle Wolfenstein game.
While most gamers no doubt remember id Software’s classic Wolfenstein 3D
shooter, few remember that it was actually based on a previous title made by Must Software called Castle Wolfenstein.
Now, production company Panorama Media and Samuel Hadida have confirmed, via Collider
, that they’ve signed up Roger Avary to write and direct a movie adaptation of Castle Wolfenstein.
The film, according to those involved, will try to blend previous World War II action movies like Captain America and Inglourious Basterds, and focuses on a young U.S. Army Captain who, alongside a British Agent, must face off against Adolf Hitler’s Paranormal Division in order to stop him from using a new secret weapon.
Avary, who co-wrote Pulp Fiction and worked on a variety of other games, like Rules of Attraction, is apparently a fan of Wolfenstein games and is looking forward to working on the film, so let’s hope it won’t end up caught in production limbo like other video game-based movies.
