XIII To Become NBC Miniseries

Never read the comic book, or played the game, but I look at it as an experiment to see how best to retell the stories found in video games.

Since the film route hasn’t worked out for the best most of the time (I still think Silent Hill is the best game-to-film adaptation so far), it would be interesting to see how much of the game is going to come through in the miniseries.

Looks like Val Kilmer is using his newfound working relationship with NBC to good use (he’s also the voice of KITT, the talking car, for the network’s Knight Rider rebirth). According to Comics2Film, Kilmer and Stephen Dorff will be headlining a mini-series for NBC called “XIII”, to be based on the videogame of the same name. I’ve actually seen the game whenever I head down the gaming aisle at Best Buy and Fry’s, but have never actually played it, or indeed, glanced at it more than once as I walked past it. More details about the game/mini-series below.
This adrenaline-charged miniseries begins dramatically as the first female U.S. President is shot dead by a sniper during her Veteran’s Day speech. Three months later, a wounded man is found tattered in a forest with no memory of his identity. The only clue is a tattoo on his neck, “XIII.” Could his lightning-fast reflexes and killer instincts betray him as the presidential assassin that the U.S. is desperately searching for?
