Twentieth Century Fox plans to make a CG-animated movie based on EA’s Spore, according to a Variety report.
Ice Age’s Chris Wedge is set to direct, and scriptwriters Greg Erb and Jason Oremland are on board as well.
Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age, Robots) will handle the CG bit, while EA’s Patrick O’Brien and Maxis’ Lucy Bradshaw are executive producers.
“From every perspective — visually, thematically and comedically — the world of Spore provides the potential to put something truly original on the screen, said Wedge.
“With more than 100 million unique creatures uploaded to our website, it’s clear that people are passionate about the game, and it will be exciting to offer a powerful medium like film in order to expand their experience with Spore,” said Bradshaw.
