David Cage hires famous Hollywood talent for next PS3 game

'Well-known actor and actress' to lend voice and likeness to new project

Quantic Dream, the Paris games studio responsible for the critically acclaimed PS3 title Heavy Rain, has hired a "well-known actor and actress" to provide voice work on its next project, CVG understands.

David Cage, the director of Heavy Rain, will disclose his new project in a matter of hours at the Sony E3 2012 press conference, and it is likely that he will take stage to introduce the household names who are providing voice acting for the new project.

The identities of the Hollywood stars remain unknown.

Cage has in recent years emphasised the importance of casting for in-game characters. The Paris studio has an in-house motion capture facility, where actors' performances are recorded and replicated through advanced animation techniques.

For Heavy Rain, Cage hired English actor Pascal Langdale to provide his voice and likeness to the game's lead character, Ethan Mars.

Quantic Dream is currently working on two separate projects, both PlayStation exclusives, yet further details on either are not yet clear.

Spokespersons for Sony and Quantic Dream were unavailable for comment at the time of going to press.
