Last time we heard about the movie adaptation of Max Payne, the man who would be responsible for filling the iconic shoes of the one-man army was still up in the air. One quick peek over at IGN, and the facts now seem to indicate otherwise.

Filming is set to start on March 2 in Toronto, and Max will be played by none other than the bad boy himself: Mark Wahlberg.  Just how true to the game the movie will stay is still up for debate (do they ever?), but we do know of at least one common thread: Max's family is murdered, and he has every intention of exacting swift revenge. Further details are scarce as usual, but we'll keep you abreast of them as they unfold. 

With the Max Payne game and the subsequent sequel being considered a sacred IP by many gamers, their reactions to the finished film should prove quite noteworthy. Whatever you do John, please don't let this movie suck. The fans are depending on you.
