Just saw this on the IL-2 forums and decided to repost the news here.

Apparently a Finnish crew is making a movie of the Tali-Ihantala battle with a focus on making it as realistic and true to real life as possible (SPR and Pearl Harbor oughta start taking notes =p).

They've even got their hands on a replica Fw190A-8, made by Flug Werk, which is to be painted and marked as Erich Rudorffer's aircraft.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one for sure, looks interesting. :nodding:

Ok found this little teaser on YouTube, looks pretty good:

And apparently no flimsy love story. Yay!

Yes exactly, I heard the same rumors from other sources. The movie is going to have a remarkable budget, and it will seemingly be historically VERY accurate.

Waiting for this movie, I reccomend to everyone the Finnish classic movie about the Winter War "Tutenmaton Sotilas" (The Unknown Soldier, 1954), a masterpiece concerning the hardship through which the unbelievably brave Finns went through.

Well, this looks kinda good. But i cant actually say that SPR is not realistic, but PH, yes, thats just some Hollywood crap.

Well, this movie probably not gonna be shown at the cinema here in Norway. Ill have to wait for the DVD. I recomend "Kill Buljo", an norwegian kick-ass lap movie.

I was actually acting in this movie as a volunteer fill-in actor, played both soviet and finnish soldiers. Was there in the filming of some of the tank scenes at Parola, last summer. Quite exciting. :)
