War movie ‘Apocalypse Now’ getting its own videogame

(Reuters) – Francis Ford Coppola is developing an interactive, psychological horror videogame based on his epic Vietnam War film "Apocalypse Now," and is asking the public to contribute $900,000 toward the cost of making it. By Thursday, one day after Coppola's announcement, the fund had reached $55,000. The interactive game will involve role playing with gamers taking on the character of U.S. army Captain Willard (played by Martin Sheen in the 1979 movie), who is on a secret mission to assassinate renegade Colonel Kurtz (played by Marlon Brando), the director said in a statement.
