Is it possible that we might bear witness to a Heavy Rain movie? Further still, would a big screen adaptation of Heavy Rain manage to have the same psychological an emotional affect that the game has had on so many of us gamers? The talent is definitely there, and with the Heavy Rain voice actors looking spot on identical to their video game counterparts, we could be in for one heck of a treat. Only time will tell.
