Company of Heroes Movie Trailer is a World War II Film
UFO Productions has a film adaptation of the acclaimed THQ and Relic Entertainment game Company of Heroes in the works, and that film now has a trailer.
We're not quite sure why a game based on a theme already over-represented in film warranted a licensed movie treatment, but it appears to be a good enough excuse for another screen narrative focused on the 101st Airborne, and the movie apparently even stars Band of Brothers alum Neil McDonough.
A release date for the Company of Heroes movie is listed only as "coming soon". Watch the trailer below.
So they just stole the name of a game and turned it into a completely different story? Reminds me a bit of Doom. What is the point of this, it's just another random WWII movie why do they need to take the COH name?
With Tom Sizemore and Neal McDonough it almost looks like they just took footage from Band of Brothers for the trailer. Also looks like it has the actor who played the German officer that was beaten to death with a baseball bat by Donny in Inglourious Basterds.
