Sheldon Turner’s pitch for an adaptation of the PS3 video game “inFAMOUS” has been picked up by Sony Pictures says Wired.
The story centers on bike messenger Cole MacGrath, who survives an explosion that destroys entire blocks of Empire City only to find he has new electricity-derived super powers.
The game allows the player to use his powers for good or evil, as MacGrath’s karma affects how the devastated city’s people and infrastructure deal with him.
Sony is currently working out a deal for rights to the game. Avi and Ari Arad will produce.
