Francis Ford Coppola announces Apocalypse Now video game

Francis Ford Coppola’s film studio American Zoetrope is teaming up with a crack team of game industry veterans to turn classic war movie Apocalypse Now into a crowdfunded psychological horror role-playing game. Coppola commented:

“Forty years ago, I set out to make a personal art picture that could hopefully influence generations of viewers for years to come. Today, I’m joined by new daredevils, a team who want to make an interactive version of Apocalypse Now, where you are Captain Benjamin Willard amidst the harsh backdrop of the Vietnam War. I’ve been watching videogames grow into a meaningful way to tell stories, and I’m excited to explore the possibilities for Apocalypse Now for a new platform and a new generation.”
