‘Deadwood’ creator adapting Heavy Rain flick

According to a Variety report, David Milch, the creator of HBO’s “Deadwood” and “NYPD Blue” will pen the upcoming Heavy Rain motion picture.

Milch will begin writing the Heavy Rain-inspired film, simply dubbed “Rain,” when he finishes the first season of HBO’s horse-racing show “Luck.”

“David Milch’s incredible ability to transform intense and complex storylines into gripping, popular drama makes him the perfect partner for us to have onĀ Heavy Rain,” producer Bob Shaye said.

No actors, directors, or a release date have been announced for the film yet. I’ve sat through many a terrible game-to-movie films and I am crossing my fingers for this one. What about you?
