The Sims: The Movie
Yup, you read that right. Live-action film based on hit game series planned.

The Sims, the hit life simulation videogame series from Electronic Arts, is being turned into a live-action movie by 20th Century Fox.

The story is being kept under wraps and no actors are attached to the project at this time. According to today's Variety, Brian Lynch (Scary Movie 3) will write the script.

Rod Humble, head of Sims Studio, told the trade, "The Sims has done an interactive version of an old story, which is what it's like to have infinite power and how do you deal with it. Given that that's an old story, you can imagine how easily that would translate to traditional story telling." Oh, now we see their angle! But will it work?

Fox-based producer John Davis is putting together the project. Davis' recent credits include Norbit, Eragon, and Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties -- not exactly a list that will reassure skeptical fans of the game.

Will the characters speak that weird language? Will they have those symbols popping up over their heads? Stay tuned to IGN for answers to these questions and more Sims movie news as it breaks!

Hell no, I'm not watching a movie with a director who filmed crap like that.

Plus if Sim's is based on life and this movie is based on Sim's won't it just be another crappy lovestory/family comedy?

I can imagine an animated movie coming from this, but not one that will be good. If anyone sees it, it will only be to see how they made it and what the Sims is like in a movie. I doubt anybody will go to see a good flick.

And yes, the ideas are running short if they're making this. :|
