Scottish actor Kevin McKidd tells The New York Post that “there are talks of a feature film” based on the hit video game series “Call of Duty”.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star, who voices the Captain “Soap” McTavish character in both the ‘Modern Warfare’ entries in the series, adds that he’d definitely consider tackling his character in the flesh – “if the script is good, and Gerard [Butler] isn’t available, then absolutely.”
The latest game in the series, “Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2”, was released across all platforms last week worldwide and took in $310 million in North America and the U.K. alone on its first day.
Meanwhile McKidd says a feature film based off HBO’s “Rome” in which he starred is still very much in play. “There is a script that is being shopped and it’s supposedly very good, I haven’t seen it, but I am definitely going to be a part of the movie” said the actor who adamantly says his character is alive despite what’s seen at the end of the TV show.
