Wesley Snipes makes game from prison

Convicted criminal and erstwhile movie star Wesley Snipes is involved in the creation of a new game, even though he's still behind bars for tax evasion.

The Blade star has been doing porridge since just before Christmas and isn't due to be released until the middle of 2013. But that hasn't stopped him from planning a new video gamecalled Julius Styles: The International.

Rather than the action spectacular you might have imagined though The International is a puzzle game for the iPhone and iPad; with Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Android versions due to arrive sometime later.

The game is being made by Lapland Studio, whose only pervious game is the not very good WiiWare title Lead The Meerkats.
According to comments made to website IGN the game, "was inspired by my desire to bring my Art of War, Murder at 1600 and Passenger 57 characters into the game world.'

'Julius Styles will offer something for both the mind game strategist and the kick-ass special ops warrior lover,' said Snipes - presumably on visitor day.

'I love games that challenge my mind and reflexes,' he added. 'Julius Styles pits your street knowledge survival skills with your academic intellect and spiritual intuition.'

Snipes is also planning to make a film based on the Julius Styles character, but that will obviously have to wait until he's paid his debts to society (and the IRS).
