New Line acquires 'Heavy Rain' rights
« on: February 28, 2010, 05:09:26 PM »
New Line Cinema has optioned the rights for a film adaptation of the PS3 title Heavy Rain.

According to Joystiq, the studio acquired the license in May 2006, shortly after a casting trailer for the game was shown at E3.

Developed by Quantic Dream, Heavy Rain has been heralded as "interactive fiction". Its storyline follows four characters as the track a serial murderer known as the Origami Killer.

The game features a unique control scheme, using a trigger button for movement and the analogue stick to control the position of the character's head. Set pieces are carried out through "context sensitive" actions or quick time events. Players can also access their characters' thoughts at the push of a button.

Can't wait for Shenmue 3

I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

While the game is great, it would not make a good movie as-is.

Keep the characters and basic plot.  Improve the intertwined character relations.  Fix the gaping holes surround the serial killer.

Ray Winstone should play the PI.
