Yes. You read that title correctly. Speaking in an interview with IGN, regarding their work on Skylanders Spyro’s Adventures, Toy Story writers Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen said they are currently in talks to write a film based on Zynga’s FarmVille. However, the duo never came right out and said it, but the hint is as big as the sky: “So, yes, we will continue writing movies. We are also working on several new and very exciting opportunities. We’re in conversations with Zynga to do something with one of their brands. Can’t really say too much on that front yet, but ‘Old MacDonald’ didn’t have a factory, if you get our drift.” The project has yet to be announced formally, and Zynga refused comment on the matter.
