The latest in a growing trend of turning classic film licences into modern videogames, Bits Studio has announced the development of a game based on Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Due for release on PC, Xbox, PS2 and PSP in 2006, the game is based on the third film in Leone's The Man With No Name trilogy. The studio has bought the rights to create games based on all three films, although there have been no further announcements on future games in the series at this time.

Details regarding the actual gameplay mechanics of the Western adventure have yet to be released, however it is confirmed that the Ennio Morricone's famous musical score will feature in the game.

In a statement made to the Hollywood Reporter, Bits CEO Foo Katan also stated that he was looking at different options for the contribution of facial likeness and voice acting from the 1966 film's cast.

Katan commented that he had not ruled out working with Clint Eastwood, who starred in the lead role in all three films. Eastwood has recently agreed to provide his facial likeness and voice acting talent for the development of another cult film licence, Dirt Harry.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly will be released in 2006, joining the growing list of classic cinematic licences now being converted into videogames, including Scarface, Taxi Driver and The Godfather.
