Beowulf Movie Actors Join Games' Cast  by Craig D at 10:43

Here's a single Beowulf screenshot and also a picture of actor Ray Winstone playing the game, Mr Winstone plays Beowulf in the upcoming movie and also lends his voice and likeness to the game, as do fellow actors Anthony Hopkins, Brendan Gleeson and Sebastien Roche. Beowulf the game begins shipping on November 9th.

"This is the first time I’ve worked on a video game, and I must say it was one of the hardest working days of my career," confessed Ray Winstone after the intense recording sessions for the Ubisoft production. "But it was vital to capturing the power of the film and translating that into a great gaming experience. Beowulf is a brutal character, a Dark Age-gangster with both hero and monster in him ... as a player, I can identify with the monster slayer."

"These performances stir us like a great soundtrack does - you get shivers. The starring actors lend authenticity and intensity to The Beowulf video game experience, something that was indispensable in order for us to extend the story beyond the movie," said Gabrielle Shrager, writer and lead story designer for the Beowulf video game. "The actors seamlessly translated their characters’ depth and emotion, breathing life into their video game roles as they did for the film."
