For once, we are getting a videogame-based movie that actually makes a lot of sense. As reported by Variety, Fox has acquired the rights from EA to produce a Spore movie, and while few specifics are known about the film at this time, there are some names attached to the project.

"From every perspective -- visually, thematically and comedically -- the world of Spore provides the potential to put something truly original on the screen," says director Chris Wedge. Having previously directed Ice Age, I think he's a suitable candidate for the gig, although he's no Uwe Boll.

The movie is set to be produced by Blue Sky Studios, while EA Entertainment's Patrick O'Brien and Maxis Studio's Lucy Bradshaw will both serve as executive producers. Finally, Greg Erb and Jason Oremland (The Princess and the Frog) will be writing the script for Spore.

Out of all of the films based on EA properties that are in the works -- The Sims, Army of Two, Dante's Inferno, Dead Space, Mass Effect, and probably something else I'm forgetting -- I believe this one seems like it has the most potential to be successful with its target audience.
