The Sims Coming To The Big Screen?
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

In what may be one of the most unlikely choices for a game-based movie, 20th Century Fox recently acquired the movie rights to Electronic Arts' popular Sims franchise. The Sims is the best selling PC game in history and has sold more than $1.6 billion dollars in the five year history of the franchise. The movie project is in early development.

Steve Asbell is overseeing the project for Fox with SIMS Studio head Rod Humble managing the creative property for Electronic Arts. Brian Lynch will script; story is under wraps with talent yet to be named.

"'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," said Humble. "Given that that's an old story, you can imagine how easily that would translate to traditional story telling."

Davis' most recent projects include "Norbit," "When A Stranger Calls," and "Eragon."

Lynch scripted and helmed upcoming "Big Helium Dog," and penned "Scary Movie 3," and is managed by Benderspink.
