With the latest video game breaking sales records left and right, it comes as no surprise that a feature film version is in the works. The New York Post recently spoke to actor Kevin McKidd, who voices the Captain "Soap" McTavish character in the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, who revealed that a Call of Duty film is picking up steam. Here's an excerpt from the article.
"They were looking for a rough, Scottish actor in Hollywood they probably couldn't get Gerard Butler, so they got the No. 2 Gerard Butler, me. I had no idea it would be so huge, and now there are talks of a feature film," he revealed to PopWrap. Then came the kicker, when asked if he would be bringing Soap to life in the movie, he said, "if the script is good, and Gerard isn't available [laughs], then absolutely."
McKidd, who also starred as Lucius Vorenus on the HBO series Rome, revealed that a feature film based off the series is currently being shopped around.
"There is a script that is being shopped and it's supposedly very good, I haven't seen it, but I am definitely going to be a part of the movie," Kevin told PopWrap. He then went on to say that his character, soldier/politician Lucius Vorenus, is not dead despite what happened in the show. "He very much alive, so that should be a fun story to tell."
We'll certainly keep you posted on both projects as soon as we have more information.
