The 2005 film adaptation of id Software's first-person shooter Doom may not have packed the punch of a BFG 9000 at the box office, but now another of the Texas-based developer's stable of first-person franchises is getting a shot at the big screen. Variety is reporting today that id's Wolfenstein series of games is being adapted to a feature film.

The writer and producer behind Silent Hill are reteaming to create Return to Castle Wolfenstein, according to the Hollywood trade paper. The film will follow protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz and his squad of troops as they investigate Nazi experiments with the paranormal in the midst of World War II.

The film will be written and directed by Roger Avary, who won an Academy Award for Best Writing for his work on Pulp Fiction. His previous directorial work includes The Rules of Attraction and Killing Zoe. The producer on the film, Samuel Hadida, has also been behind the Resident Evil movies, and Good Night and Good Luck.

Nothing like watching a bunch of Nazi's get killed on the big screen. :P

Now if Indiana Jones could make a cameo, all will be right. "I'm here to appraise your tapestries." Or was it, "I sell leather hats that can never be destroyed."


Understand this lad, fate is a fickle lady. Work with the hand you're dealt and you may just be able to run your flag up the pole. Don't, and well, you may just find your mast cut down.
