“Battlefield: Bad Company” to become hilarious(ly violent) TV show…

 

“Are we shooting people today or what, Sarge?”

Well, this is a turn-up for the proverbial books  – Adam Sandler‘s Happy Madison production company are involved in bringing DICE & EA’sBattlefield: Bad Company” series of first person shooter games to TV as an action comedy.

I am…cautiously intrigued?

I’m not the biggest fan of the FPS genre – where are the Elven folk? Why can’t I play as a plucky Dwarven Tank? – but this property probably lends itself well to film/tv adaptation as it echoes movies like “Three Kings” and “Kelly’s Heroes” and has slightly more of a sense of black comedy inherent in its premise than the more sober likes of “Call of Duty” and “Medal of Honour“.
