Sony Pictures has nabbed a pitch from screenwriter Sheldon Turner who will adapt inFAMOUS, the Sucker Punch Prods. video game into a feature film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is working out a deal for rights to the game, which was published by sister company Sony Computer Entertainment.
Launched in May, inFAMOUS centers on bike messenger Cole MacGrath, who survives an explosion that destroys entire blocks of Empire City only to find he has new electricity-derived super powers. The action game, designed for Sony's PlayStation 3 console, allows the player to use his powers for good or evil, as MacGrath's karma affects how the devastated city's people and infrastructure deal with him.
A prequel comic book and soundtrack to the game also have been released.
No production date has been set.
