The original Beowulf movie with Christopher Lambert & Rhona MitraUbisoft announced that it will develop and publish the video game based on Paramount Pictures’ Beowulf, the upcoming feature film from Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis. The game is expected to release at the same time as the Beowulf movie’s planned opening in November 2007.

Groundbreaking director Robert Zemeckis offers a vision of the Beowulf saga that has never been told before. In a time of heroes, the mighty warrior Beowulf slays the demon Grendel and incurs the wrath of its monstrous, yet seductive, mother in a conflict that transforms a king into a legend. Beowulf stars Ray Winstone in the title role and Anthony Hopkins as the corrupt King Hrothgar, as well as John Malkovich, Robin Wright Penn, Brendan Gleeson, Crispin Glover, Alison Lohman and Angelina Jolie as Grendel’s mother.

“Beowulf is particularly well-suited for the video game format,” adds Robert Zemeckis. “Not only does the film have a compelling story and strong visual style that will translate well into a game, but because the film is entirely digital, we are able to share our assets with Ubisoft. Audiences will be able to make a seamless transition between the film and the game.”
