Process Media is also going to partner with iNK Stories to develop a video game based on the film, allowing audiences to have the ultimate interactive experience set within the world. No word yet on what type of game this will be, but given the description of the film, it sounds ripe for an open-world “Grand Theft Auto”-esque style where players could try their hand at vigilante justice. iNK Stories cofounders Navid Khonsari and Vassiliki Khonsari added, “We are excited to work with John and Tim on developing a genre-bending game, with a feminist perspective on the American phenomenon of a serial killer.” No idea where the feminist perspective is coming from, but color me very, very intrigued.
“I’d wanted to work with Michael Rooker again since ‘Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,’ but we never got the chance,” said McNaughton. “Finally, I wrote a story that took the genre in a whole new direction.” McNaughton says Rooker’s character is named Stony, and that he’s the “ultimate serial killer with a twist,” driving his truck to return home for the first time in 20 years to settle a score from the past. These two men made disturbingly beautiful magic once before, and there’s no doubt in my mind that they will be able to capture that violent lightning once again.
