A new shot of Mark Wahlberg in his role as Max Payne has appeared over on Dark Zero.

It shows the former Funky Bunch boss wearing a rather nondescript black anorak and getting into a car whilst getting rained on. And looking cross.

The big screen version of Rockstar's olden-days game is being directed by John Moore. He was responsible for the 2006 version of The Omen, plus Flight of the Phoenix and Behind Enemy Lines.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mila Kunis will star opposite Wahlberg as an assassin on a mission to avenge her sister's death. Kunis is best known for appearing in That '70s Show and providing the voice of Meg in Family Guy.

As reported ages ago, the Max Payne movie will take inspiration from Clint Eastwood classic The Outlaw Josey Wales. There's still no official word on a release date, though IMDB reckons it could be out as soon as October.
