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.
