"Painkiller" Aiming For The Big Screen

Production company Guy Walks Into a Bar has acquired feature film rights to the videogame "Painkiller."

Jon Berg, Todd Komarnicki and Matthew Weinber will produce the feature, following 'Daniel Garner', a character stranded between purgatory and hell.

"Painkiller" debuted in 2004, published by DreamCatcher Interactive and developed by game studio People Can Fly, with 24 levels of designs including medieval castles, factories and lunatic asylums.

In 2006 the game was released on Xbox as "Painkiller: Hell Wars".
