Wesley Snipes Is Developing Games From Prison

Of course he is.

Wesley Snipes – known to his fans as vampire hunter ‘Blade’, and known to the IRS as ‘That bloke who owes a load of tax money – is creating a new franchise from the confines of his prison cell.

Speaking to IGN, Snipes said he was “was inspired by my desire to bring my ‘Art of War,’ ‘Murder at 1600′ and ‘Passenger 57′ characters into the game world. Julius Styles will offer something for both the mind game strategist and the kick-ass special ops warrior lover.”

The movie for ‘Julius Styles: The International’ will be released in 2013 (assuming Snipes gets out prison by then) but iDevice owners can get their hands on Julius in June, with an XBLA/PSN game to follow.

“I love games that challenge my mind and reflexes,” said Snipes, “Julius Styles pits your street knowledge survival skills with your academic intellect and spiritual intuition.”

WiiWare developers Lapland Studio are on programming duties and will be helped by film companies Red 27 and Elstree Studio Productions.

Kooky actress and star of Dexter, Julia Stiles, has yet to comment on Wesley Snipes stealing her name.

    Rumour has it hes been doing deadlifts with live grizzly bears, push ups on a bed of hedgehogs, and chopping up wood with his own penis in an attempt to gain the title: most kick ass person existing today.

      Great. I also like the fact that the word penis isn’t blocked by TSA’s otherwise zero tolerance of the use of inappropiate language. Penis. Penis, penis, penis.

      To be fair, penis isn’t slang though. All the other words like ***, ****, **** and ********** are

      :)

    Sorry Wesley, but I’m beating on “green 00″ for this one. But if you’re looking for good game ideas- how about a 2 vs 2 White Men Can’t Jump, NBA JAM style basketball game?

      Thank god it isn’t just me. I read the headline and switched off about the article trying to think if I had been told or read that he was in jail.

      didn’t knwo that either. I wonder whether they keep an extra eye on him, after all the man has done numerous action films (wasn’t his first itertaion in game land about a movie where he gets out of a prison?)

    Please… whatever you do, just don’t make another Blade game… *shiver* Why do most movie-based games have to suck so badly?
