'NYPD Blue' creator confirmed for 'Heavy Rain' adaptation
Friday 28 January 2011
Emmy-award winner David Milch, creator of TV series
NYPD Blue and
Deadwood, has been confirmed to adapt video game
Heavy Rain for the big screen.
The game came out in February 2010, a dark detective thriller noted for its cinematic ambition.
Milch's task will begin after he's done with the first season of the Dustin Hoffman/Nick Nolte series Luck.
Heavy Rain won't be the only famous video game to receive the Hollywood treatment in recent years: Angelina Jolie has starred in two Tomb Raider films (2001, 2003), and Jake Gyllenhall took the lead role in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010).
Earlier this month, Warner Bros. greenlit an episodic web series based on characters from the Mortal Kombat games, while Mark Wahlberg's attatched to play Nathan Drake in David O. Russell's Uncharted.
Heavy Rain, the video game, was developed by Parisian studio Quantic Dream. One of the game's early trailers is hosted on Quantic's YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVB6Zr_5xvY.
