Warner Bros. Pictures is fast-tracking a feature film based on Sony Playstation 3's Heavy Rain, with Variety reporting the studio has hired writer David Milch to adapt the story into screenplay form. TV viewers will remember Milch from his days as showrunner and top writer for shows like "NYPD Blue" and "Deadwood". The trade says that Warner Bros. will wait until Milch wraps up his work on HBO's "Luck" and that New Line's former chiefs Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne will produce via their new production company Unique Features.
Plot Concept: Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer - named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. Four characters, each following their own leads and with their own motives, must take part in a desperate attempt to prevent the killer from claiming a new victim.
