Film Adaptation Planned for PS3 Noir Thriller Game Heavy Rain

Heavy Rain (PlayStation 3)
More information about the DS game

Variety is reporting that David Milch (NYPD Blue, Deadwood) is writing a film adaptation of the PlayStation 3 noir thriller game Heavy Rain.

In the game, which spans four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer — named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. Even more chilling is the fiend's well established pattern of killing his victims four days after abducting them. The public is gripped with fear as the police seem powerless to stop the carnage, and another potential victim — Shaun Mars — has gone missing.

The game features four playable characters: a father, a photographer, an FBI agent with a special skill set, and a retired cop turned private investigator. Each character have different paths, means and motives to ending the reign of terror that the Origami Killer has imposed on their city.

Though we haven't played the game, it sounds like an interesting premise for a film to us; watch the game trailer below.
