News about the Wolfenstein Movie

Film director Roger Avary in speaking with horror blog Fangoria:

"One of the foremost experiences I had growing up was playing Wolfenstein 3D. I played the original Castle Wolfenstein game, but really it was 3D that changed things. It was like a quantum leap in graphics at that point, and it was the first time I was transported inside another world and in control of it. My avatar was me, and when I turned it off, it was like I was leaving a very real world."

"What's not to like? You have guys shooting Nazis, storming bunkers, blowing up bridges and busting dams. To me, there's this proud tradition of guys on a mission in WWII . I already loved that, along with monster films, and Castle Wolfenstein kind of pulls both of those together."

"So when the opportunity to do this movie came up-through Samuel Hadida, who produced my first film (Killing Zoe), I was like, 'Hands down, I'm in.' That's the kind of adventure for me. It's something I want to do, and I'm finishing the script now. I've kind of done the festival film circuit; I want to make a big popcorn adventure movie, and Return to Castle Wolfenstein seemed like the perfect thing for me."
