Himmler’s SS Paranormal Division return, as Panorama Media and Samuel Hadida have confirmed that production on action-adventure film Castle Wolfenstein is underway.
Taking inspiration from the iconic game franchise, Academy Award winner Roger Avary has been hired as writer and director, with Hadida producing through his Davis Films Productions.
The story follows a young US Army Captain and a British Special Agent on a top secret mission to Castle Wolfenstein, where a secret weapon will be unveiled to Hitler. After reaching the Castle, our heroes are confronted with Himmler’s SS Paranormal Division and must fight, not only for their survival, but for a mission that could alter the course of the War.
“With Roger at the helm, we expect everyone will join us for a wild and fun cinematic ride that will grab contemporary film audiences with the same irreverent, hip, over the top approach that Roger brought to Pulp Fiction and the other films he has either written or directed,” explained Hadida.
“It is a big action adventure but also strongly character driven and based on a very solid story.”
Hadida continues, “The film involves a classic assault on the bad guys, who are nominally Nazis, more evocative of Inglorius Basterds than the actual World War II. It is a vaguely futuristic retro world as fun as Captain America, which has recently been reintroduced to the world audience with great success.”
