Rogen and Goldberg are also contributing the foreword for the book, so they’ve apparently had their eyes on this project for a while. But Hollywood’s love affairs with the video game world are often intense and fleeting. For instance, the film rights for Ernest Cline’s 2011 retro-future gaming novel, Ready Player One, were also sold before its release (to Warner Bros.)—with multiple studios competing for the book, no less. But while Ready Player One sold well, the film project remains stuck in development limbo. Those who want to relive the thrill of “blast processing” on the big screen will have to hope that Rogen and Golberg have enough clout to save Console Wars from the same purgatory. [via]
