Pixels Getting Full Happy Madison Treatment

InFamous Movie Gets “Writer”

I swear we are not turning into a “games on film” site. It’s just that Hollywood is trying to steal all of your m oney, and I like reporting on it. So, the powers that be have signed the writer of the prequel of the remake of Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre to adapt InFamous. […]
