Cole McGrath seems to be making the rounds at the moment. Having recently been announced to have his costume appear in LittleBigPlanet, it seems he will now be making his way to the big screen. The PlayStation 3 exclusive title, inFamous, has handed to screenwriter Sheldon Turner. The deal with Sony Pictures is apparently a seven-figure deal, and whilst property rights are still being finalised, it would be unlikely to see a problem considering both entities are Sony.
“What excited me most about the game was it was the first of which I’ve come across that had a big idea and a character arc,” Turner told THR. “It is, I believe, the future of gaming. The game, while big and fun, is at its core a love ballad to the underachiever, which is what our hero, Cole McGrath, is.”
Game-to-film adaptations have an unfortunate history of being average at best so lets hope this can be the film to break that trend. However, don’t expect inFamous: The Movie (not the official title) until 2011 at the very earliest.
