Wesley Snipes Developing in Jail

Hollywood-actor Wesley Snipes, despite being in Jail for three years for Tax Evasion, is developing a video game starring himself while serving his sentence.

The game, called Julius Styles: The International, is a combination of puzzle and action games. Snipes stated that he wanted to bring the characters from his hit movies Art of War, Murder at 1600 and Passenger 57 into the gaming scene.
I love games that challenge my mind and reflexes...Julius Styles pits your street knowledge survival skills with your academic intellect and spiritual intuition.
-Wesley Snipes
The Blade star will be starring in a movie with the Julius Styles character after his release from prison, but the game should see a release sooner. Developer Lapland Studio will be assisting in the project, working on releasing the game on iOS, Android, PSN, and XBLA services in the near future. The iOS version will be releasing this June.

Lapland Studio is a Finnish developer formed in 2004 with a focus on developing films and games. Its only major title to date is the WiiWare release Lead the Meerkats, a real-time strategy game in which players guide Meerkats across the wilderness to survive and grow.
