Farmville Gets A Movie Deal?
In a recent interview with IGN, Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen, writers of Toy Story, hinted that they were working on a new movie. Specifically, they said that they were in conversations with Zynga about doing a movie based on one of their properties. They then made the statement: “Can't really say too much on that front yet, but 'Old MacDonald' didn't have a factory, if you get our drift.”
There’s obviously only one conclusion to draw from that statement: these guys are writing a Farmville movie. But what on earth would that even be? Are we just going to sit in the theater for two hours waiting for our Facebook pages to reload while our crops grow ever so slowly?
Let’s look on the bright side: Sokolow and Cohen did write Toy Story, and that movie was amazing. Then again, they also wrote Daddy Day Camp, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Evan Almighty.
Run. Run as fast as you can, and don’t look back.
