'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' Movie On Hold Due to Strike

by Rainier on Nov. 6, 2007 @ 2:51 a.m. PST

Set against the backdrop of WWII, Return to Castle Wolfenstein plunges players into a maelstrom of action, espionage and covert operations, as an American soldier tasked with infiltrating the heart of Nazi Germany and stopping the darkest plans of the Third Reich. Throughout the game, players are locked in combat with waves of Nazi storm-troopers, undead Teutonic knights and the twisted products of genetic experimentation. Return to Castle Wolfenstein further draws the player into the nightmare with advanced artificial intelligence (AI), photo-realistic character and environment textures, revolutionary effects, and an immersive story that unfolds before the player like a movie.
Writer/director Roger Avary, who won an Academy Award for Pulp Fiction with Quentin Tarantino, told SCI FI Wire that he is almost done with the script for his film adaptation of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein video game, which he hopes to direct. He added that everything is on hold until the writers' strike ends. Avary, who said he did research into the paranormal, the American military and the Nazis, also wrote the script for the Silent Hill movie.
