Quantic enlisting stars for video games

French developer Quantic Dream has told GamesIndustry.biz that it intends to secure some of the biggest names in Hollywood for its upcoming PlayStation 3 title, currently known as Heavy Rain.

With a new in-house motion capture studio, the Fahrenheit developer believes that it can successfully portray actor’s emotions – not just physical movement – with actors now interested in the script and story behind the game rather than worrying about the technology.

“We had a meeting with Leonardo DiCaprio in 2004 and we tried to convince him to play in one of our future games – at the time we had Fahrenheit to show him,” detailed Guillaume de Fondaumière, co-founder of Quantic Dream, in an exclusive interview published today.

“He liked it very much, but he politely explained to us that we still were not at the level that he’d expect the technology to be at in order to give us his time and be able to portray his performance. Today, it’s very different. We’re talking with class A actors. These Hollywood actors are asking us about the scenario and the stories as the technical aspects are taken care of. (link)
