Well, I stand corrected.
Well, Roger Avary's proven his talent before, and Silent Hill was pretty good IMO. So hopefully this will actually move forward.
I wonder who they'll pick to play B.J. Blazkowicz?
"Hopefully" Being the key word.
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.
mecha hitler already has a movie...
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.
that would be epic
I would love to of heard the pitch for this movie
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.
@MonkeysDad: LOL! My first thought too actually.
I want Jason Statham in this movie.
Next up: Mecha Hitler vs Mothra
I wonder if the Germans will force the studio to change Mecha Hitler into something else like they did for Wolfenstine on the Super Nintendo.
Hitler will be played by Lars Von Trier.
that would be awesome
