In a New York Post interview with actor Kevin McKidd, voice of Captain "Soap" McTavish in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it was revealed that a movie adaptation of the aforementioned game is in the works. Here's an excerpt of the interview...
Nice way to waste money activision, but it's ok you can just make it back by releasing a 3 map pack DLC for $20
Or they can release a 5 map pack DLC with a couple changes and call it Left4Duty: MW3 and charge $60.
I love how GameTrailers knocked 0.7 points off of Uncharted 2 for "Not being original" and having a "Short" 10 hour campaign but gave MW2 a 9.5 for bringing absolutely NOTHING new to gaming and a campaign that is LITERALLY under 5 hours. -MW2's campaign is mediocre at best. -Spec Ops is just bits and pieces of the mediocre campaign. -Multiplayer still has the lag issues that CoD4 and WaW had. It's like everything you do is 5 seconds out of sync with the rest of the game. And don't try to tell me "It's just lag like every game has" because CoD4, WaW and MW2 are the ONLY games that do this so it's clearly an issue with Activision's servers. The most annoying thing is when you're getting shot, so you run behind a 30 foot thick building but you still die and when the camera shifts into third person, you're suddenly out in the open and on the Kill Cam you're standing wide out in the open like a peckerwood jackass even though on your screen you were behind it! There's a TON of other ridiculous lag problems that ONLY happen in the CoD games but I won't bother naming them since there's so many. 95 on Metacritic LOL! MW2 might be the single most overrated game of all time! Move over GTA IV, I think you've been replaced. MW2 gets a generous 7.5 IMO.
MW the movie = 1 hour long movie with cliche story full of explosions. It fit the game perfectly.
the movie going to cost $10 more than normal tickets?
To say that this game has brought absolutely nothing new what so ever to FPS's is a bit of a stretch. I mean come on, what other game lets you jump in an AC130 mid multiplayer match? And the amount of weapons, streaks and perks make for some really interesting class creations. Honestly, I like how they listened to the fans who said "Man, the Airstrikes and Choppers are cool and all but I'd love to be able to be up there in those aircrafts and shoot" and now you can. Yea... They did screw over the PC community heavily and that seriously blows, but just because they dropped the ball on a few things doesn't mean you over look EVERYTHING they did with the game. Though I will be pissed if it gets Game of the Year over Uncharted 2. That game simply raised the bar in almost every aspect. They deserve the award. Now I'm gonna jump back into this BC2 Beta. It's sick.
Oh boy. There's gonna be controversy all over this movie if they do make it. Something tells me there will be a scene like the "No Russian" part of Modern Warfare 2.
Yeah, but there are scenes like that all the time in movies. It won't be a big deal because it's now in a passive and watchable form instead of an interactive form. It's no longer training children to be terrorists, or however they like to sensationalize it on the news.

I wonder what they will call it mediocre warfare 2 the half hour movie?
please dont joke about that i beat MW2 in 3hours even tho i died a lot like 40-60 times but those were grenade suicides on favela
Can't wait to see the No Russian scene...
if they put MW1 and MW2's story together. I was stunned by how good the campaign was.
Wow, I'm just amazed at the amount of hate leveled at this game. Is it the lack of exclusivity that bothers people? Get over it, guys.
Are you serious? Now disliking a multiplatform game makes you a fanboy? You have to be kidding me.
who must have missed all Bobby Kotick's greed-rants, PS3 bashing, and then the PC community's uproar. Or he doesn't care, for some reason, I've seen some people just care more about the game and its legacy, regardless of who gets the money or who's being supported or what's being brought to the table in new iterations (or being taken away, in some cases). Then again, some people don't "hate" the game, they can't stand how it's being lauded as the next coming of actions games, yet does nothing to reinvent them, it's rehashing at it's finest. It's getting 10's for graphics and gameplay, when other games that deserve 10's are getting 9's... I don't know, but I can see clearly why there is contempt for the game, because of what it stands for, but that's just me.
@LastDays: Who said anything about fanboys? @BWS1982: I just can't bring myself to give a crap about Kotick. There's always going to be some douche to hate in the games industry. Last year it was the guy from EA. These guys all have families of their own and they're doing the best they can. As for the game getting scores it maybe didn't deserve, (I agree about the graphics being sort of weak in spots) why should we hold that against the game? Go write a letter to the review sites if you're upset or (heaven forbid) stop visiting that site.
No thanks to be honest...lol and honestly, I barely understood just what the hell was going on in MW2 to begin with. I beat it like ok...wtf just happened throughout all this?
Hope I see Martyrdom in this movie!!! ;)
if we see Juggernaut in action.
Juggernaut has already been done in other movies where someone got shot multiple times. like lord of the rings
game is short so will be the movie. 20 min movie here it come.
Expect to pay double for the ticket.
I think the movie might actually be good if the acting is done well.
Geez Activision, stop milking already. I thought Drum Hero was already beyond lame. What's next, Modern Warfare: The Musical???
why are all the haters in you all spend so much time commenting on news related to a game you dont like its sad really.

And if Spielberg's involved, you can expect to see aliens in there somewhere....
LOL, what a perverted mind I have. The first thing I thought about when I saw that pick was is that a male goat? Guess I need to lay off the beastiality for a while. ;) j/k
