Internet sleuth Superannuation has tuned up a United States Copyright Office filing which appears to suggest that PS3 interactive drama Heavy Rain has been optioned for a film adaptation.

The agreement - a "short form option" - is between New Line Productions and QuanticDream, and attributes the work Heavy Rain to David "Cage" de Gruttola. Who knew.

Interestingly, the document dates back to May 2006, the year Heavy Rain made its first appearance at E3 in the form of the technical demo, The Casting. It was renewed in 2007.

Whether New Line, part of Warner Bros., will renew its interest in Heavy Rain now the game is out is anyone's guess. But at least we got to find out David Cage's real name.
