Wesley Snipes, currently serving time for tax evasion in the US, has confirmed he’s working on a game version of Dubbed Julius Styles: The International.

The star will be making a film of the same name soon after his projected prison release in 2013, according to IGN.

The game combines action with puzzle elements, and is to release on iPhone and iPad this June before heading to Xbox Live, PSN and Android at an unspecified date.

Snipes said the game “was inspired by my desire to bring my Art of War, Murder at 1600 and Passenger 57 characters into the game world,” said Snipes. “Julius Styles will offer something for both the mind game strategist and the kick-ass special ops warrior lover.”

He continued: “I love games that challenge my mind and reflexes. Julius Styles pits your street knowledge survival skills with your academic intellect and spiritual intuition.”

Lapland Studio’s making the game.
