Max Payne - the movie

04.19.2002

Following in the successful footsteps of SUPER MARIO BROTHERS, DOUBLE DRAGON and STREET FIGHTER: THE MOVIE comes another video game-to-film adaptation.   This time it's the violent shooting game MAX PAYNE that will make it's way to the big screen courtesy of Dimension Films.  Shawn Ryan, creator of the gritty new FX cop-drama "The Shield" (where they somehow get away with saying the word "shit" on TV), has signed a deal to adapt the film but it is unsure what capacity he will perform - producer, director, writer or all of the above?  Max Payne is a former DEA agent trying to clear his name of a murder he's falsely accused of, all while avenging the death of his wife and daughter.  The game is available on PC, Playstation and X-Box systems and has sold close to 2 million copies since its release.
