Spore Goes Hollywood
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Electronic Arts and Twentieth Century Fox recently announced that Chris Wedge, known for his work on the animated Ice Age movie, will be directing the CG animated film adaptation of the evolution sim, Spore. Spore is Will Wright's latest god-sim game which allows players to help a lifeform evolve from the primordial muck to the far reaches of outer space.

From Gamasutra:

EA continues with its plans to turn major game franchises into film, as Variety reports Ice Age's Chris Wedge is directing a CG-animated film based on the Will Wright-created game Spore.

It's the sixth game-to-movie adaptation that EA has announced in about a year. "I'm always looking for unique worlds to go to in animation," said Wedge, who also directed 2005's CG film Robots. "From every perspective -- visually, thematically and comedically -- the world of Spore provides the potential to put something truly original on the screen."

EA is teaming up with Twentieth Century Fox on the film. Writers Greg Erb and Jason Oremland, who wrote the movies The Princess and the Frog for Disney and the Ben Stiller-starring The Return of King Doug, are writing the script for the Spore movie.

EA and Ice Age animation house Blue Sky Studios are producing the Spore film. EA Entertainment's Patrick Bradshaw and Maxis Studio VP Lucy Bradshaw are executive producers on the movie.
