CDV Software Entertainment announced today they have signed premier vocal, writing and artistic talent for work on Codename: Panzers, Phase Two, the sequel to CDV’s critically acclaimed WWII RTS Codename: Panzers, Phase One. Famed actor Peter Weller, best known for his work in such films as “Naked Lunch” and “Robocop,” will be the voice of Jeffrey S. Wilson — the game’s cigar-smoking, butt-kicking, turpentine-drinking American hero.
Award-winning artist Dru Blair will be lending his talent to Phase Two by providing the game’s box art. Blair is best known for his lifelike artwork focusing on military aircraft, and he has also provided artwork for the covers of multiple “Star Trek” novels. More information about Dru Blair and downloadable sample artwork is available at http://www.drublair.com/.
Boosting the star power of the game, Hollywood writers David Freeman and Joe Reinkemeyer are developing the storyline and character dialogue for Codename: Panzers, Phase Two. Freeman and Reinkemeyer’s credits include work on “Law & Order,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “The Full Monty.”
