    Post The star of the Max Payne movie is...

    Thought about putting this in the gaming forum, but since it's a movie...

    They need a slimmer, less-muscular dude imho, like an Edward Norton.

    Twentieth Century Fox has Mark Wahlberg in the crosshairs for "Max Payne," a live-action adaptation of the bestselling Rockstar videogame that will begin early next year. John Moore will direct.

    Wahlberg is negotiating to play the titular cop who is haunted by the tragic loss of his family and has little regard for rules as he investigates a series of mysterious murders. He finds himself up against an adversary bent on destroying Max and the streets he protects.

    The script was written by Beau Thorne. Julie Yorn is producing through Firm Films, along with Scott Faye.

    Wahlberg will make the film after he completes "The Lovely Bones" for director Peter Jackson and DreamWorks. He recently starred for the studio in the M. Night Shyamalan-directed "The Happening," which will be released next summer.

    Moore has directed "Behind Enemy Lines," "Flight of the Phoenix" and "The Omen" for Fox. He also is developing a live-action adaptation of the Virgin Comics title "Virulents" for Fox and New Regency.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    Edward Norton would be a great choice although as we saw in American History X he is pretty ripped.
