Most films based on video games turn out pretty poorly. I’m not sure why but that’s just the way it is. Heavy Rain is a game that needs a good film. For those of you who have played it, you’ll know what I mean. The material it provides could make for a very good movie. The game was praised for its writing and its story and it was only a matter of time before a film adaptation went into production.
Today, we get news that the film has found a writer and that writer is David Milch, the creator of Deadwood and NYPD Blue. He’s currently working on season one of Luck for HBO but once he finishes up, he’ll start on the script for Heavy Rain. Surely the film is still a long ways away but at least we know that there is a competent writer behind it. Now let’s see who they get to act in it.
