Deadwood creator David Milch is adapting Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain into a film, according to Variety. He'll be joining Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne in a collaboration between Unique Features and Warner Bros.

"David Milch's incredible ability to transform intense and complex storylines into gripping, popular drama makes him the perfect partner for us to have on Heavy Rain," said Shaye. 

When I reviewed Heavy Rain, I said it would've been laughed out of any film festival, noting how lucky it was that its banal story was trapped within a videogame. Milch has his work cut out for him if he's going to turn that awful script into a film. The worthless plot twist alone could kill the entire thing.
