Process Media will also partner with iNK Stories to develop a video game based on the film, which will allow audiences to experience the ultimate interactive experience in the world. No word yet on what kind of game this will be, but given the film’s description, it sounds ripe for an open-world “Grand Theft Auto”-esque style where players could try their hand at vigilantes. iNK Stories co-founders Navid Khonsari and Vassiliki Khonsari added, “We’re excited to partner with John and Tim on developing a genre-bending game, featuring a feminist take on the American serial killer phenomenon.” I have no idea where the feminist perspective comes from, but I’m very, very intrigued.
“I’ve wanted to work with Michael Rooker 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 called Stony, and that he’s the “ultimate serial killer with a twist,” driving home in his truck for the first time in 20 years to settle a score from the past. These two men have made disturbingly beautiful magic before, and I have no doubt they will be able to catch that violent lightning one more time.
