A place of scribblings located in the darkest corner of the internet. Yup.

And now for some random movie news, which is *kinda* gaming related…

In what will almost certainly be another dud in a long line of failed videogame adaptations, IGN Movies reports that Max Payne is due to commence filming next month with a wrap up in late May. Mark Wahlberg is apparently in the frame to play the angst ridden, constipated looking hero, and as of yet, no further details have been released regarding the picture which is based on 3D Realms adult shooter.

In related movie news, it was announced at the premiere of the Guillermo Del Toro produced film Orphanage, that the visionary director has signed to direct New Line Cinema’s duo of Hobbit films, one covering the events depicted in the Hobbit itself and the other to depict what happened in the time between The Hobbit and the Fellowship of the Ring.

Don’t expect them too quickly however, as the current writers strike in Hollywood has meant that a screenplay can’t even be drafted yet, which means that we’ll see principal photography commence in 2009, with the film opening in 2010.

Needless to say, this WILL rock.
