The triple-platinum Spore could be coming to a theater near you thanks to Fox and EA.  Variety reports that it will be a CG movie produced by Blue Sky studios, directed by Ice Age’s helmsman Chris Wedge, with Greg Erb and Jason Oremland, the writers behind Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, will be working on the script.

Hit the jump for more juicy information and quotes.

Wedge is excited to be involved with the project.  He told Variety:

“I’m always looking for unique worlds to go to in animation, from every perspective — visually, thematically and comedically — the world of ‘Spore’ provides the potential to put something truly original on the screen.”

EA Entertainment’s Patrick O’Brien and Maxis (the developer behind the game) VP Lucy Bradshaw will both be executive producers on the movie as well.  However, there has been no comment on whether Will Wright is involved with the movie at this time.

Spore has sold more than 3.2 million units worldwide, and it’s not the only popular EA title getting a bid for the big screen. The Sims, Mass Effect, Dante’s Inferno, Dead Space, and Army of Two are all being shopped around.

EA is making a big push for the silver screen, Who knows what the future holds? Perhaps EA will release Mirror’s Edge: The Movie or a straight to DVD rendition of Road Rash.

  1. I’m convinced that this is a super-preemptive, elaborate April Fools joke.

  2. Wait what? Spore? How do you make a movie out of spore? Just have random creatures running around evolving?! What?

    I’m really confused – HOW can you make a movie out of Spore? What!? !?

  3. Given the track record of video games turned movies, I won’t hold my breath.

  4. Perhaps the full title is “Spore: False Expectations.”

  5. Oh come one, if they can make a movie out of Asteroids, they can easily make a movie out of Spore.
