If you thought that the upcoming biblical epic, Noah, seemed like a weird choice for a Darren Aronofsky film, that’s nothing compared to finding out that he once directed some of the live-action scenes in a full motion video game during the 1990s! In 1997, shortly before he made Pi, Aronofsky worked on a game called Soldier Boyz. It was based on a B-action movie of the same name, which starred Michael Dudikoff and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and may qualify as the most random subject ever chosen for a video game adaptation. If you ever played full motion video games during the nineties, you were probably so blown away by the technology at the time that you overlooked just how badly acted and directed these live-action scenes were. Needless to say, Soldier Boyz is about as far from a typical Darren Aronofsky production as you can get.
