inFamous movie on the way

Writer reckons it's "the future of gaming".

Sony Pictures has signed a seven-figure deal to bring inFamous to the big screen.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a bloke called Sheldon Turner is set to write the script. He previously penned The Longest Yard and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, and is working on X-Men Oranges: Magneto.

Avi and Ari Arad have signed up to produce the movie. Their previous credits include The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man. They're also producing the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune film announced last month.

inFamous, for those who aren't familiar, follows the adventures of a bloke called Cole who can make lightning come out of his hands like in Star Wars. It scored a highly respectable 7/10 on Eurogamer.

"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," said Turner.

"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."

A release date for the film, announced there has been not.
