EA Sets Up 'Spore' Movie At Fox


Twentieth Century Fox has paired up with Electronic Arts to turn the publisher's popular "Spore" game into an animated creature feature, with "Ice Age's" Chris Wedge attached to helm.

Greg Erb and Jason Oremland, who penned Disney's upcoming "The Princess and the Frog" and Ben Stiller pic "The Return of King Doug" at Paramount, will write the script for the "Spore" movie.

It will be produced as a CG-animated toon by EA and Blue Sky Studios, which is behind the studio's "Ice Age" pics, "Robots" and its next effort, "Rio."

In the game, which was released in September 2008, players create their own creatures and the worlds they live in and share them with other gamers to create an overall universe.

EA Entertainment's Patrick O'Brien will exec produce the "Spore" pic with Lucy Bradshaw, VP of Maxis Studio, which developed the game with Will Wright, who also created the blockbuster "Sim City" and "The Sims" franchises for EA.

Thoughts:
I have never played the PC game, but I have always wanted to. What was stopping me from playing this game was the fact that it is only on PC. I'm mostly an Xbox 360 gamer considering my PC (about 5 years old) ain't powerful enough to run most of today's games. As for the news, I think this could be a pretty cool idea. I mean I'm sure Fox will probably intervene with the project like they always do with their movies, but I think this could be a fun experience if done right. Spore is all about creatures and how different they are from one another. If the CGI animation is done right than this could be one beautiful looking film in terms of visual effects.

Actually, a Spore movie in the style of Ice Age seems to fit with me. Maybe they can show the evolutionary process, which parallels the changing of eras in Ice Age.
Also, the first DS Spore game had a story. It was...ok.

Spore game PC is actually a very fun game. Although the Space stage can get kind of dull after you've gone to the center of the galaxy and earned master badge level ten, it's still fun evolving your creature from a single-cell to a galactic warlord/shaman/trader/diplomat/zealot/knight/bard/ecologist/scientist/wanderer. Even if you've beaten the Space Stage 10 times, there are still those achievements to get. If you just like creating better, then you're not alone. (50/50 on that; it's fun to play and build).
