Payne to the Max

More Max Payne movie news

The Max Payne movie adaptation continues to gain steam like all the festering manhole covers of the big apple's rotten heart were pumping into its veins. Production company Dimension Films today revealed that they have signed Shawn Ryan (who describes himself as "a writer and a gamer") to pen the movie's script. Ryan is probably best known at the moment as the brains behind popular cable TV cop series The Shield, although he's also worked on Buffy spin-off Angel as a writer and co-producer in recent years. He was said to be "ecstatic" when he was offered the chance to script Max Payne, describing the man himself as "an incredible character with a rabid fan base". That's putting it mildly.
