Game Movie Writer Pleads Guilty To Vehicular Manslaughter

Roger Avary, who won an Oscar for Pulp Fiction, has pleaded guilty to DUI and vehicular manslaughter for a deadly crash in 2008 that left his friend dead and his wife in critical condition.

The filmmaker penned the Silent Hill script and was slated to make a big-screen version of Wolfenstein.

In January 2008, Avary was involved in a car accident which saw his wife hospitalised and his friend, 34-year-old Andreas Zini, killed. The director entered his plea in a Ventura, California court this past Tuesday.

He will be sentenced on September 29 and is currently free on bail.
