Almost exactly a year ago, it was announced that producer Samuel Hadida has secured the rights to the video game “Return to Castle Wolfenstein,” with Roger Avary attached to write and direct the adaptation of the id Software property. The duo had previously worked together on video game adaptation Silent Hill.
id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead told Eurogamer that the project is still in development, saying that “with the writer’s strike it took so long to get underway and Roger Avary, the writer, had a commitment that was in line before working the Wolfenstein stuff, but I’ve recently been in contact with Roger and he’s actually working on the script right now.”
The WWII-set “Return to Castle Wolfenstein” revolves around U.S. Army Ranger B.J. Blazkowicz, who leads a team of agents into Castle Wolfenstein in order to investigate the Nazis’ SS Paranormal Division.
