And this come from the NY Post’s PopWrap section of all places. During an interview, Rome actor Kevin McKidd discussed his upcoming projects; one being a spinoff of Rome and the other…a Call of Duty film? Yea.
Here’s more from PopWrap:
On a more animated note, Kevin — who voices Captain “Soap” MacTavish in “Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2” — says that the hugely successful video game franchise is also eyeing a big screen incarnation.
“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.”
Why we does our spidey sense see a big name director secretly lurking in the shadows of this film? Call it a hunch.
