I’m not sure how the current trend of critically-acclaimed directors taking the helm of video game adaptations came about, but I’m interested to see where it’s going. “Deadwood” creator David Milch has reason to crack open the peaches. Milch is writing an adaptation of the PS3 game Heavy Rain.

The noirish thriller is a mystery that follows four characters as they pursue the Origami Killer.  The game itself is modeled to be an interactive choose your own adventure story based around ethical moral decisions. With Milch on board, you can expect the tone to shift toward the debate of what is good and what is evil.

If this works out, hopefully he’ll stick with the adapting gig. Mostly because Ian McShane would be perfect for a gritty Super Mario Bros. reboot. (Variety)
