Brace Yourself for a Possible FarmVille Movie

Farmville.

Remember when people were super into FarmVille there for a month or two? Barely? Not Hollywood! Screenwriters Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen are at work on a script for a FarmVille film, they told IGN. "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. Sokolow and Cohen have adapted playthings and cartoonish creatures into film before, both brilliantly and then later less brilliantly: They helped write the screenplay for Toy Story, but they also wrote the screenplay for Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties. A movie about pretend crop-tending and Facebook-spamming doesn't sound hugely appealing, plus if it's bad, it'll tank all chances for an epic Peggle film trilogy. [IGN]
