Looks like Hollywood is ready to pinch another videogame for their film library, but BIA's military expert Colonel John Antal says "it's all talk" for now.
The latest Brothers in Arms game is Hell's Highway where Matt Baker and 101st Airborne will be making a bloody mess in the Netherlands this August.
"There's talks; but until you get beyond the talks, it's all talk. Anyone who has a brain, who's involved in the financing of this stuff and the creation of this stuff goes okay, make a hit videogame hit, really good showing as a novel, yeah that might make a good movie. But, you know, it all depends," barked the Colonel.
Operation Market Garden is the focal point of the game; it was where the allies planned to end the war early by securing a bridge in the Nazi-infested Netherlands, 1944. Obviously things went a little off-track and the game will depict 8 out of the 10 days Antal says the operation lasted.
Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway is to be released on PC, Xbox360 and PS3 this August.
