Sources are reporting that Electronic Arts Inc. has sold the movie rights of best-selling game series, “The Sims”, to 20th Century Fox. The Sims franchise has sold more than 85 million units since its debut 7 years ago.
“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,” says Rod Humble, head of The Sims Studio at EA. The thought of a Sim movie seems pretty cheesy to think about. Could it really be decent? We guess if it’s handled right. — Andrew Dobrow
