Kotatu writes: "A pair of new console games isn't the only thing cooking for the classic 3D shooter franchise, Duke Nukem. Hollywood producer Scott Faye, who's readying Max Payne for its October 17th release, is working with 3D Realms' Scott Miller on a Duke Nukem movie.
"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," said Faye. "As is the case with all of my game adaptations, I'd rather not make the movie than make a poor adaptation."
Faye stuck with that strategy with Max Payne – a game he first saw at E3 in Atlanta and made a verbal commitment to Miller to one day bring it to the big screen. Over 10 years and a couple movie studios later, the movie is hitting theaters with Mark Wahlberg in the starring role."
