"The month before Spore went on sale last September, its creator, Will Wright, said the triple-platinum game might expand into films. And though the famed designer has since left Electronic Arts, the Spore movie idea apparently lived on. Today, Varietyreports that 20th Century Fox is indeed making a computer-generated movie based on the evolution-civilization-space exploration sim.

The project is in development at Fox's Blue Sky Studios, the studio behind the tepidly reviewed Ice Age movies. Ice Age director Chris Wedge will direct, with Greg Erb and Jason Oremland, who wrote Disney's upcoming The Princess and the Frog, penning the script.

"I'm always looking for unique worlds to go to in animation," Wedge told Variety. "From every perspective--visually, thematically, and comedically--the world of Spore provides the potential to put something truly original on the screen."

Patrick O'Brien, vice president of Electronic Arts' licensing arm EA Entertainment, will produce the Spore movie, along with Lucy Bradshaw, vice president of the game's developer, Maxis. Wright, who founded Maxis, left the EA-owned studio earlier this year to form an entertainment think tank, Stupid Fun Club.

Other EA movie projects in development include The Sims, also at 20th Century Fox, and Army of Two, Dead Space, Dante's Inferno, and Mass Effect."

I'm too tired to give an articulate opinion of sorts but in my head I've got "Videogames that are translated into movies are never good. Why havn't anyone outside the industry realised this?".

sir, there is no way that a movie like this could be a success. it will fail horribly.

Nice time travelling btw. Don't worry about it though, the search function is pretty useless most of the time.
