Iconic war movie ‘Apocalypse Now’ getting its own video game
Francis Ford Coppola is developing an interactive, psychological horror video game based on his epic Vietnam War film “Apocalypse Now,” and is asking the public to contribute $900,000 toward the cost of making it. The interactive game will involve role playing with gamers taking on the character of U.S. army Captain Willard. “Apocalypse Now” won the best picture Golden Globe and two Oscars for sound and cinematography. However, it is now regarded as one of the most influential war films of all time and in 2000 was chosen for preservation by the U.S. National Film Registry.
