Heavy Rain film being 'fast-tracked'

Deadwood producer to adapt Quantic Dream's title for the big screen

NYPD Blue and Deadwood producer David Milch is to write the movie treatment for a big screen adaptation of PS3 thriller Heavy Rain.

Dubbed 'Rain', the movie is being 'developed via Unique's first-look deal with Warner Bros., which is fast-tracking the project', according to Variety.


Unique's Bob Shaye, who will produce the film alongside colleague Michael Lynne, said: "David Milch's incredible ability to transform intense and complex storylines into gripping, popular drama makes him the perfect partner for us to have on Heavy Rain."

Heavy Rain creator David Cage said earlier this month that the game has paved the way for richer storytelling in interactive entertainment.
