Max Payne to Begin Filming Soon

Filming will run from March 2nd to May 9th in Toronto on “Max Payne”, the Mark Wahlberg-led film adaptation of the hit video game reports Filefront.

John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines, The Omen, Flight of the Phoenix) is set to direct the story of a New York cop whose wife and baby are killed by thugs high on a designer drug called Valkyr. Devastated, the cop joins the Drug Enforcement Agency and goes undercover with the mob to find the source of the drug.

Framed for the murder of his partner and hunted down by both the mob and the police, he is forced to wage a one-man war against crime.
