inFAMOUS to Shock the Silver Screen


Recent news has confirmed that high-profile PS3 title, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, will be getting the Hollywood makeover. This meaning, it’s being adapted into a film. And as it turns out, another PS3 exclusive will be getting a film adaptation as well.

The Hollywood Reporter announced that an inFAMOUS film adaptation is in the works, and Sony Pictures has already picked up screenwriter Sheldon Turner in a seven-figure deal. The studio is currently working out a deal for the rights, as the game was published by Sony Computer Entertainment.

Sheldon Turner had this to say:

“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. 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.”


As most PlayStation owners know, inFAMOUS is about a bike messenger named Cole McGrath, who is caught in the center of a explosion that levels most of the city. As the player, you’ve found that you have received electric-based powers. And it’s up to the player to use those powers for good, or for evil. How these possibilities will pan out in the movie though has yet to be determined. (Evil is better)

No release was given for what year the movie may come out, but some guesses are pointing to 2011. As we asked for the Uncharted movie as well, who would you like to play Cole? What about Zeke, or Trish? Post your suggestions below.
