Vidgame Star Duke Nukem comes to the big screen.
Max Payne producer Scott Faye has revealed that he is planning to bring another classic video game star to the big screen: Duke Nukem.
Faye is collaborating with publisher 3D Relms’ Scott Miller on the project, and said: “I’m working diligently at making a Duke Nukem movie scenario that will live up to the character and its import in the videogame world… as is the case with all of my game adaptations, I’d rather not make the movie than make a poor adaptation.”
He added: “We’re expanding Duke’s ‘storyverse’ in a very significant major way without abandoning or negating any element that’s being used to introduce Duke to the next-gen platforms.”
The gun-toting, bleach-blonde antihero has been causing carnage on a variety of platforms since his 2-D, PC debut back in 1991, with two next-gen console offerings now in the making, as well as the long-delayed PC update Duke Nukem 4Ever.
