Spore film coming from EA and Fox

Ice Age director at the helm

20th Century Fox and EA this afternoon let rip news on a new partnership that will see a CG flick created based on Spore.

The new animation is revealed by Variety, with Ice Age man Chris Wedge set to direct - alongside scriptwriters Greg Erb and Jason Oremland.

Ice Age studio Blue Sky are behind the new movie, while EA will part-produce this big name production.

"From every perspective - visually, thematically and comedically - the world of Spore provides the potential to put something truly original on the screen," says Wedge.

"With more than 100 million unique creatures uploaded to our website, it's clear that people are passionate about the game, and it will be exciting to offer a powerful medium like film in order to expand their experience with Spore."
