Currently being developed in collaboration with writer/director John Singleton ("Boyz N the Hood," "Baby Boy," "2 Fast 2 Furious," "Shaft"), the exciting urban/action adventure game is scheduled to be available in the fourth quarter of 2005 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Christine Peters ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days") will be collaborating with the game developer to produce the film.
"'Fear & Respect' brings the unique urban experience of South Central Los Angeles to the gaming world in a way that is both realistic and exciting," says Peters. "I'm thrilled to be working with Midway Games to turn this riveting game into an equally exciting major motion picture."
"Fear & Respect," is a "3rd person" video game about a young man who has to make survival choices in the urban world of Los Angeles: Does he survive by inspiring fear, or does he survive by inspiring respect in the characters he encounters -- and what lessons does he teach by his actions? The decisions the player makes influences the events (and ultimately the outcome) of the story.
