The boys and girls over at USA Today (I think it’s some kind of newspaper, or sumthin’) has done a “first look” at the upcoming movie “Max Payne”, starring Mark Wahlberg as an ex-DEA dude whose family is whacked, leaving him all whack out and looking for the people responsible. Basically, The Punisher without Thomas Jane. The movie version of the popular game will star Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, who is way too short for the role of Mona Sax, an assassin who assists Payne in his quest for vengeance.
The article is actually a pretty short one (an excerpt below), but it does come with a new image, so, uh, I guess that’s cool.
Wahlberg concedes he was not a Payne gamer but says one of his assistants “plays it all the time, and I probably watched him play more than I should. It’s got a story line more complex than most video-game movies.”
[Mila] Kunis says it’s daunting trying to please video-game fans.
“I made the mistake of stumbling on an Internet site of fans and what they thought of the casting,” she says. “I hope I don’t cross them on the street before the movie. Maybe they’ll change their minds when I’m in leather pants and bustier.”
I love ya, Mila, but leather pants and bustier ain’t gonna help you grow an extra foot, babe. But hey, take off enough articles of clothing, and maybe we’ll look the other way … THIS time.
