Heavy Rain: Fancast

A fancast of Quantic Dream's grounbreaking interactive drama

Heavy Rain is a 2010 neo-noir psychological thriller interactive movie/video game created by Quantic Dream for the PS3 known for its intense gameplay and multiple endings. In a nameless American city, the Origami Killer, a serial killer who murders young boys and drowns them during extended periods of rainfall, strikes again, forcing his victim’s father to endure trial after trial in a desperate bid to save his son, while a reporter, an FBI agent and a photojournalist scramble to collect clues leading them to the killer’s identity.
A film version, titled Rain, is under development by Warner Brothers, to be penned by Deadwood scribe David Milch. I look forward to it, with all its finger-hacking and JAYSON-calling glory.
Anyway, my fancast;



David Fincher as director. His past accolades include Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac. Nuff said.

Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko) as Ethan Mars, an architect father of two who falls on hard times, suffering from mental issues and a divorce after one of his sons is killed in a traffic accident. Ethan is drawn into the Origami Killer’s machinations, forced to perform five excruciating trials before he can find his son.

I don't know what Heavy Rain is, but it looks really good. Anyways, I think you meant DAVID FINCHER as the director, as WILLIAM FITCHNER is the actor playing the Bank Manager in TDK

Good cast. I specially dig your Norman Jayden choice. Gillen rules. Dude deserves bigger roles.

Gyllenhaal is cool choice also but i always pictured Mars to be little bit older guy.

Brendan Gleeson is perfect for Shelby! The others im not to sure about... Gyllenhall looks the part maybe a bit young though? Chastain good. Would like to see bigger and better actors in the parts.
