So Yeah, A ‘FarmVille’ Movie Might Happen

Here’s a wild one: Zynga is apparently in talks to do a FarmVille [Free] movie. Speaking with IGN the other day about an actual video game, Toy Story writers Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen teased that they’re in discussions with the mega-publisher to pen the possible flick.These chats seem insanely early, as the duo couldn’t even name-drop FarmVille and Zynga, according to IGN, is refusing comment on the matter.

“So, yes, we will continue writing movies. We are also working on several new and very exciting opportunities. We’re in conversations with Zynga to do something with one of their brands. Can’t really say too much on that front yet, but ‘Old MacDonald’ didn’t have a factory, if you get our drift,” they said.

If this seems really stupid to you, we regretfully remind you that movies based on incredibly shallow games like, say,  Resident Evil and BloodRayne, have been made and actually shown in theaters. Of course, there’s been plenty of video-game-to-movie adaptations that haven’t panned out over the years, so it’s not like a FarmVille movie is a lock. It’s definitely not.
