Wesley Snipes' iOS Game Released

August 11, 2011 -

Wesley Snipes proves that you don't have to be free to do anything with his new iOS game, Julius Styles: The International. Snipes is currently serving three years in a federal prison for tax evasion, but that hasn't stopped him from being creative (Snipes' projected date from prison is July, 2013).

His new game, Julius Styles: The International, is an iPad and iPhone action adventure game developed in conjunction with Lapland Studio, Elstree Studio Productions, Red 27 Films and Maandi Media Holding. The $2.99 game puts players into the rather unglamorous world of economic espionage. Working for an elite group of businessmen called the 'Assembly,' players attempt to divert global funds into the groups' collective pockets. As Julius Styles, a young man who recently graduated from MIT and has lost his way, players join the group as "an economic hitman, an expert in persuasion, blackmail, and assassination." Julius will use his repertoire of dark skills to infiltrate governments, businesses, and other shadowy organizations to do untold amounts of wickedness.

"Evolving from the military special ops, security specialist backgrounds of characters I’ve played in the past, this guy was trained by the streets of today, to be the international player and dot com super spy of the future," said Wesley Snipes in a press release about the game issued today. "Fall back, Nino and excuse me, Mr. Bond! I’d like you to meet Mr. Styles, Julius Styles: The International."

"This marriage, my vision of a hardcore action movie combined with Lapland’s implementation of a kickass video game, is going to hook you up and leave you thirsty for more," added Snipes. "Episode 1 is just the beginning. I’ve been waiting ten years for a creative opportunity like this!"

The first episode of Julius Styles: The International is now available for $2.99 in the App Store for iPhone and iPad. For more information, check out www.laplandstudio.com.

Wonderkarpthank you for that line, Andrew. alot of great films fail the bechdel test. Gravity fails it and it has a female lead.11/21/2014 - 4:48pm
Andrew EisenAw, thanks James! Well, now I have to drive back to work!11/21/2014 - 4:45pm
Andrew EisenDidn't have a chance to say this on the HuffPost segment but while the Bechdel test is useful as a broad examination of gender representation in media, it's not at all appropriate as a judgment of quality.11/21/2014 - 4:45pm
james_fudgeAndrew you killed it!11/21/2014 - 4:44pm
WonderkarpMadeline Bergman. second female, they never speak of men, just a computer program. it passes the test11/21/2014 - 4:34pm
E. Zachary KnightDoes Other M have more than one woman in it?11/21/2014 - 4:31pm
Wonderkarpyet Metroid Other M, a game where people cried sexist due to the commanding officers restricting Samus, passes the test....11/21/2014 - 4:21pm
Wonderkarpwait...they are using the bechdel test to determine which games are sexist?.....how does that work with a game like Super Mario Bros when there is no Dialogue? test itself is BS. Alien doesn't pass it11/21/2014 - 4:20pm

Andrew EisenFun Fact: Back when it was new, I was linked to that docket by three separate people in the same day. It was submitted as proof of their claim. In all three cases, the docket didn't even address what they were talking about. Did any of them read it?11/21/2014 - 3:00pm
