How does The Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now, and Homefront correlate with one another?
From the modernist writer to the Vietnam War screenwriter to the video game developer, people’s interactions with books, movies, and video games are beginning to take an evolutionary turn. John Milius, screenwriter for Apocalypse Now, transposed Joseph Conrad’s mind boggling novella, The Heart of Darkness, to the big screen in 1979. Fast forward thirty years into the future, THQ has recently signed John Milius to write the story for their new video game, Homefront. THQ’s internal developer, Kaos Studios, is in the beginning stages of the new first person shooter.
