The best selling PC game in the history is about to get a big screen treatment. Yes, the 20th Century Fox reportedly has secured film rights to "The Sims" and will develop a live-action version of the Electronic Arts' simulation game.
Project will be produced by John Davis with Steve Asbell overseeing for Fox and Rod Humble managing the creative property for Electronic Arts. Meanwhile, scripting matters have already been handled by "Scary Movie 3" scribe Brian Lynch.
"'The SIMS' has done an interactive version of an old story, which is what it's like to have infinite power and how do you deal with it," Humble remarked. "Given that that's an old story, you can imagine how easily that would translate to traditional story telling."
