Roger Avary, the co-writer of “Pulp Fiction,” is currently working on a big-screen adaptation of classic WWII-inspired first-person-shooter video game series ‘Castle Wolfenstein,’ reports Hollywood Reporter.
Following the video game storyline, the action-adventure film will depict a U.S. Army captain and a British special agent on a top-secret mission in Castle Wolfenstein. The team is on a mission to investigate the unveiling of a new weapon, an event in which Hitler is to be present. After being figured out by Heinrich Himmler’s SS Paranormal Division, the good guys must fight back and survie while potentially changing the outcome of the world war.
In production for Panorama Media, Silent Hill producer Samuel Hadida will executive produce the project through his Davis Films Productions company. The announcement was made at the American Film Market in Santa Monica. Panorama’s Marc Butan and Kimberly Fox are in charge of global sales at the American Film Market; talks with U.S. distributors are in progress.
“Castle Wolfenstein is an action adventure film in the vein of Captain America and Inglorious Basterds,” says the movie’s press release. There is no word on cast or shooting information just yet.
