Dirty Harry Gets a Video Game and an HD Facelift

by | May 11, 2006 | Comments

Big fan of the "Dirty Harry" series? Well then get ready for an all-new video game version of the angry cop’s violent adventures (a game that will feature the voice talents of Gene Hackman and Laurence Fishburne!) — AND an all-new 5-movie HD-DVD collection, complete with new extra goodies and all that jazz.

"Announced today by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman and Laurence Fishburne will provide their voice and likeness in the upcoming video game based on the "Dirty Harry" film franchise. Hackman will portray Police Supervisor Al Bressler and Fishburne will play Reverend Carlton Clay opposite Eastwood as the legendary character "Dirty Harry" Callahan in the game on next generation consoles.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is currently overseeing development of the game franchise, in partnership with Eastwood’s Malpaso and The Tehama Companies, with the two-time Academy Award® winning producer and director consulting on key creative aspects of the game design. Eastwood will also lend his voice and likeness to his renowned role of police detective Harry Callahan.

In related news, Warner Home Video (WHV) will release the definitive "Dirty Harry Collection" in 2007 to coincide with the launch of the game.

For the DVD release, all films from the celebrated franchise — Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, The Enforcer, Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool — will be upgraded to HD DVD with completely revamped sound and, with the help of Eastwood himself, may feature some never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes footage and many other bonus materials.

Beginning September 1 of this year, the five movies will be placed on moratorium for more than a year prior to their release."
