Looking to break the pattern of great games made into shoddy movies, EA has apparently decided to see what sort of film a shoddy video game might yield. Hopefully the film will steer clear of Need for Speed The Run’s storytelling ambitions, and at least aim for Fast and the Furious-style entertainment.
Real Steel writers George and John Gatins have reportedly been hired by EA to turn its racing franchise into a screenplay, at least giving it a fighting chance of not ending up as yet another video game movie cautionary tale. Warner Bros., Sony and Paramount have apparently shown interest, though as always this early in the process, it’s far from a done deal.
