"Ice Age" Director to Adapt Videogame "Spore" 


The videogame "Spore" is set to be a big screen animated creature feature from "Ice Age" director Chris Wedge. Fox has teamed up with Electronic Arts for the movie adaptation.

Greg Erb and Jason Oremland will write the script. The duo wrote Disney's upcoming "The Princess and the Frog" and Ben Stiller's "The Return of King Doug."

The animation will be handled by EA and Blue Sky Studios, the animation production behind the "Ice Age" films, "Robots," and the upcoming "Rio."

"Spore," the videogame, was released in September 2008, and enables players to create their own creatures and the worlds they live in and share them with other players for their own universe!

To date, "Spore" has sold more than 3.2 million units. It's a ready-made brand fit to be a feature film.
