FarmVille movie in the works?

Annoying Facebook game FarmVille may be coming to a theater near you, reports IGN.

“Toy Story” screenwriters Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen hinted to the movie news outlet that they are at work on a script for a FarmVille film.

"We're in conversations with Zynga to do something with one of their brands,” the writers share. “Can't really say too much on that front yet, but 'Old MacDonald' didn't have a factory, if you get our drift."

Zynga is the social network game developer responsible for FarmVille, an interactive game involving virtual farm management chores.

According to the Los Angeles Times, FarmVille, once the most popular game on Facebook, is now ranked third, after The Sims Social. Zynga’s CityVille is currently the No. 1 game.

FarmVille was launched in 2009, and at its peak nearly 32.5 million people played the game in a single day.

Do you want to see a FarmVille movie, or should this phenomenon stay on Facebook?

    Toy Story worked – it was what the toys did when people weren't around. I can see the exact same thing as Farmville – what do they do when you're not playing. I think it'll work. Curious to see...

    Are they going to make the movie have frequent blackouts to simulate the game crashing !!! Not sure about FarmVille but that's all CityVille does! At least now I know what Zynga has been busy with......because it certainly wasn't making sure their app works!

    Farmville is the real Tron, drawing people from the real world into a game and trapping them there, or perhaps only the weak -minded.

    Maybe they'll have a virtual John Cougar Mellencamp do a virtual FarmVilleAid to help all the virtual farmers who have had their virtual farms virtually foreclosed on.

    It couldn't be worse than these movies they're pumping out based on shows from the late 70's and early 80's. Well, it could be worse, but it seems nearly impossible.

    I guess if you can't do a remake of a classic movie, reboot of a comic book made into movie (Spiderman), then you could do a movie based on an annoying Facebook game.

      A movie about buttHumpers and sheep. I sincerely hope they can get together. I think sheep are very pretty especially when wearings fishnet and garters.
