Following other successful movies based on computer games like Mortal Kombat and Double Dragon, Sony Pictures Entertainment will produce Counter-Strike: Movie. Based on the popular Counter-Strike multiplayer mod from Valve. German filmmaker Uwe Boll. Currently, the king of game-to-movie conversions is taking time off from producing Bloodrayne and Hunter:The Reckoning to work on the script.
The movie will focus on an international SWAT team assembled to stop a group of terrorists. However, before successfully foiling a bombing, the group must first face the internal challenges that threaten to tear it apart: The loudmouth beginner struggling for acceptance, the Team Killer who must face the consequences of a fatal accident, and the insecure wonder-kid accused of being gay.
Casting has not started for the project yet, but Ben Affleck and Colin Farrell, both avid fans of the game, have expressed interest in the project. However, the studio is leaning towards using animatronic animals in favor of human actors. "The terrorism issue is still rather sensitive in America," said one studio executive who wished to remain anonymous. "Killing an animatronic goat is much more palatable to the American public. And it should also keep it PG-13, maybe lower."
True or False? :P
