According to Wikepedia, New Line Cinema and Quantic Dream Pictures have obtained the rights to produce a film based on the “interactive drama” Heavy Rain.
The game focuses on the search for a serial murderer known as the “Origami Killer.” The Origami Killer abducts small children who are found drowned four days later, and then he leaves behind a piece of origami and an orchid as his macabre calling cards.
