'Taxi Driver' (PS3/X360) Announced

After Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Brian De Palma's Scarface, it is now Martin Scorsese's turn to get into the game arena. Majesco revealed that it will publish a next-gen console title, under development at Papaya Studio and scheduled for next year, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Taxi Driver, which will make its debut at the E3 2005.

"'Taxi Driver' remains one of the most iconoclastic films of our time," Majesco marketing vp Ken Gold said. "Compelling and powerful, the movie ensnares viewers in the seedy urban world of New York cabbie Travis Bickle, and we hope to do likewise with our game."

Mark Caplan, Sony Pictures Consumer Products executive director Interactive, said he's confident that Majesco and Papaya Studio will create a game that successfully makes the transition from film to the video game world.

The movie's cast featured De Niro, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Cybill Shepherd and Peter Boyle. Majesco said it is exploring options to include talent from the film in the game; those details, along with more information, will be forthcoming.
