According to John Davis, a producer at Fox, a movie based around The Sims really is in the works.
Davis told Collider.com that the plot would revolve around a teenage boy and his friend who discover a version of the game called the "Sims Infinity Pack" in a strange video game store.
"But what they realize is that they can scan their world in, because this is the most life-like, real 'Sims' game ever," the producer said. "And as they are playing this, they are all of a sudden realizing that what they are playing on the game is having an effect on the real world. So in effect, through the game, they are able to control their world. It's wish fulfilment, and obviously it turns against them."
We hope there are lingerie-clad pillow fights in The Sims movie.
