In addition to a pair of new console games for the classic 3D shooter, Duke Nukem, Kotaku.com reported that Hollywood producer Scott Faye, who is prepping Max Payne for its October 17, 2008 release, is working with 3D Realms’ Scott Miller on a Duke Nukem movie. 3D Realms created the 3D video game version of Duke Nukem. In the storyline of the game, murderous aliens have landed in a futuristic Los Angeles and humans suddenly find themselves atop the endangered species list. The film shoud be a pure adrenalin rush, as Nukem was good for blasting enemies with oversized guns and spouting one-liners. His mission in all versions of the games, have been to kill everything in sight.
During an interview, Faye 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.
