Well, I stand corrected.
Mecha Hitler (Hopefully) Finally Coming to the Big Screen in Castle Wolfenstein Movie
Wolfenstein has a GREAT premise for a fun action romp, and the way they describe it - Captain America meets Inglorious Basterds - is pretty much an awesome tone to try to hit. I just hope that that's all they take from it; the premise, and the name of the main character. Build a great action movie from there. THAT'S what an "adaptation" is about. Make it your own, and make it good. That's what game movies to date haven't done very well... unless you count Wreck It Ralph. Despite not being based on anything specifically, it's apparently fantastic and it's about video games so I'll take it.
I hope Wreck It Ralph inspires Sony Pictures Animation to make some Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper or Jak & Daxter movies.
A Wolfenstein themed movie is a great way to bring together some over thetop characters and create basically what would be a video game on steroids. That guy who made Watchmen should have a hand in the directing, Zak Snyder, was it?
This is gonna be one pointless movie and we all know the ending "Oh Eva, mein Leben!" - Hitler dies. I just hope kids in ten years will still understand this is a complete work of fiction. Or else the history books get rewritten.
He's been attached to this since 2007. I was really shocked to read this article because the last I heard of him he had been arrested for drunkenly killing his passenger in a car crash. Wikipedia says he spent less than a year in jail....which is kind of crazy. But, yeah. Mecha Hitler's cool, I guess.
