Usually I don't get too excited about video game to film adaptations, but when it comes to Max Payne, I'll raise the excitement bar up a few notches. For those of you wondering, Max Payne is a third-person shooter that was published in 2001 about a DEA agent on the heels of a new drug fad called Valkyr. I won't give away plot points, but the game series had more testosterone than the Running of the Bulls, combined with its over the top cinematography and dark-noir styling, you couldn't ask for a more manly adaptation. And it looks as if all is comming along well, Mark Walberg is set to play Max, the style is very similar to that of the game series, and it looks to be hitting theatres on October 17th.
