Mark Wahlberg is the New Max Payne
Yes, you heard me right – Mark Wahlberg, a.k.a.Dirk Diggler/Marky Mark/Izzy Cole (ad nauseam) will be playing Max Payne in the new motion picture to be directed by John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines). According to Variety online, the live-action adaptation of the bestselling Max Payne franchise from Rockstar Games will begin filming early next year.
That is all fine and dandy, I mean Mark Wahlberg is a decent actor, despite being Calvin Klein’s favorite underwear model, and hopefully the director and movie studio will not turn the great Max Payne into a steaming pile of… well you know. What I want to know is, when the hell is Max Payne 3 going to come out? With Rockstar getting a movie made about our favorite noir hero, hopefully a new one will be in the works – and have NOTHING to do with the movie.
