New Line Cinema interested in Heavy Rain movie

Looks like David Cage's wet dream of working in movies may finally have come true. New Line Cinema has optioned Heavy Rain for film, meaning that we may very well get a movie version of a glorified movie in the very near future. Cage might no longer have to use the videogame industry as a stand-in for his movie fantasies anymore, at any rate. 

Considering the gameplay is what made Heavy Rain good, and not its rather dire story, I really fail to see how this could be any good, apart from the potential for actors who actually know how to act this time. That might be a treat. 

Anyway, it's just a filing right now, so we don't know if it will actually lead to a movie. Can't they just put Heavy Rain in their PS3s and let it play itself like it enjoys doing? You'd get the same result for a fraction of the cost.
