According to this Variety report, Gore Verbinsky's signed on to direct a movie based on the exploits of a Second Life player.

The film is to be based on a Wall Street Journal article about the MMO and its detrimental impact on the real lives of players.

The article by Alexandra Alter focuses on a married man who spends as many as 20 hours a day on a computer, existing through an avatar who is a thriving, musclebound entrepreneur. In reality, he is a diabetic, chain-smoking 53-year-old.

Linden Labs will be pleased.
