‘Army of Two’ Video Game Coming to Big Screen

The “Army of Two” video game has sold more than 1 million units since it launched in March. A sequel is believed to be in the works. The game is a two-player action contest in which a pair of private military contractors fight their way through a web of intrigue.

Because people experience the game in pairs, playing two guys who go against the world, [producer Scott Stuber] and I agreed this format presented an opportunity to make a great buddy film,” Burns said. “The ambiguity of these private military corporations lends weight to an intelligent thriller with relevance to what’s going on in the world right now. You have contractors with their own agendas, and two guys whose friendship supersedes all the politics. I told EA right off the bat I wasn’t a gamer, and that appealed to them because they didn’t want to simply replicate the game.

This is the third EA project to go the Big Screen route recent months. “The Sims” is being developed at 20th Century Fox with producer John Davis, while sci-fi game “Mass Effect” has been optioned by Avi Arad Productions. It’s another big game title for Universal, which acquired “BioShock” for a film that Gore Verbinski will direct.

Are you glad that Videos Games are being adapted to movies?
