A Hollywood Deadline report reveals that a TV adaptation of Battlefield: Bad Company is in production at Fox. The show will be an hour long and will star the game’s main characters, Marlowe, Sweetwater, Haggard and Redford. The story follows the ‘Bad Company’ squad as they “exit military life and enter the private sector”.
Alias producer John Eisendrath is reportedly penning the script and it is said that Patrick Bach and Patrick O’Brien of EA are involved in the development of the TV show.
I don’t know about you but I’m not too keen on this one. Hollywood and a video game as good as Battlefield: Bad Company? For all we know, they could cast a few famous faces for lead roles and go all ‘mainstream’ on this one. Let’s just hope I’m wrong and wait for Battlefield 4, due for a release date in late 2013.
