Farmville animated series inbound from X-Men director

By Brenna Hillier, Thursday, 7 February 2013 23:10 GMT

X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner has signed on to produce an animated TV series based on Farmville. Deadline reports production will be handled by Canadian company Six Eleven media. No network has picked up the series yet. Ratner’s also behind the Rush Hour series and the upcoming Hercules: The Thracian Wars; he described FarmVille as “one of the most exciting brands out there today” with “endless” cross-platform opportunities. An Angry Birds cartoon is moving forward this year, too.
