The Sims are coming to the big screen

The Sims

Variety reports that 20th Century Fox have acquired the rights to produce a film based on The Sims. As the best selling game in PC history, it was probably only a matter of time before it was snatched up.

The film will be live action with real actors, although quite what they’ll be doing is another matter. In The Sims, characters just go about their normal lives, so it’s not clear what type of story they could use in the movie. Stay tuned for casting announcements in the near future.
