There's A Company Of Heroes Movie? And Tom Sizemore Is In It?

Nobody tells me anything anymore. Back in March a Company of Heroes movie was quietly announced by Sony. That movie, a direct-to-DVD thing that is actually tied to the famous PC strategy title (somehow), will be out on March 19.

It's got Tom Sizemore in it. And Neal "I was in Band of Brothers too you know" McDonough. And Jürgen Prochnow. Oh, and Vinnie Jones.

The plot's got something to do with Nazi scientists, and really, being a World War II flick has nothing in common except the setting, but it's got the Company of Heroes name and publishers THQ get a credit, so this goes in the books as an adaptation.

One that, by the looks of this trailer, I'm going to enjoy. In an "oh no it's so awful it's amazing" kind of way.

      I agree.

      Seriously though, I loved the hell out of CoH.... this makes me confused. And angry.

    But didn't the Nazi's kill Tom Sizemore on that bridge in occupied France?

      No, he killed his own career through drug abuse.

    I always thought that Compnay of Heroes was inspired by Saving Private Ryan, the opening battles are the exact same scenes (yes a lot of movies have done that scene but if you've both watched the movie and played the game, you would agree), as well as many other levels. Surely it's not just me that thinks this...

    I've seen enough Vinnie Jones films to know where this is going- sadly downhill, poor guy keeps finding himself in B movies.
    Could be worse, by say, having Ben Afleck in it.
