Hollywood Cast for Killzone 3

February 25, 2011, By Christian Cawley

Fans of the Killzone series of games will be impressed to learn that 3D cinematic sequences for Killzone 3 were directed by Jim Sonzero – and the pull of the title saw renowned British actors Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) and Ray Winstone (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) cast in these cutscenes!

With the high voltage intensity and visual punch of a blockbuster action film, the actors were cast as Helghast leaders Stahl and Orlock. McDowell and Winstone voiced the characters and also supplied their body movements and facial gestures through the use of sophisticated motion capture techniques.

Sonzero is no stranger to directing such scenes – he directed cinematics for Resident Evil 5, released by Capcom last year, and is also director of the cult horror film Pulse. Outside of movies Jim Sonzero has also garnered an international reputation as a commercial director whose credits include such brands as Coca-Cola, GM, Levi’s, Verizon, Lexus and Mercedes.

Released this week, you’ll be able to find Killzone 3 available exclusively on PlayStation 3.
