According to an article at Variety, Guy Walks Into a Bar (Starship Dave) has acquired the feature film rights to Painkiller from DreamCatcher Interactive.
The game centers around a character who is stranded between heaven and hell and is forced to become a pawn in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. It was first released as a first-person-shooter in 2004 for the PC and last year had a follow-up titled Painkiller: Hell Wars released for the Xbox 360. DreamCatcher is currently planning for another game.
The film will be produced by Jon Berg and Todd Komarnicki and carries the tagline of Heaven’s Got a Hit Man.Source: Variety
