Sony Pictures Animation has picked up rights to the Atari (http://uk.games.ign.com/objects/025/025009.html) videogame RollerCoaster Tycoon (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/074/074173.html), with Harald Zwart (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/965/965092.html) (The Karate Kid remake) heading up the development of the project.

According to Heat Vision (http://www.heatvisionblog.com/2010/05/rollercoaster-tycoon-sony-pictures-animation.html), Zwart may also direct the film adaptation. Norbit writers David Ronn and Jay Scherick will script what is envisioned to be a combination of live-action and CGI. The pair also wrote The Smurfs for Sony, another live-action/CGI mix.

RollerCoaster Tycoon (http://uk.pc.ign.com/objects/010/010759.html) is a series of games where the player gets to design -- no duh -- roller coasters and also manage amusement parks. Reportedly the games have generated more than $300 million in sales and are the third-best-selling PC title of all time in the U.S.

Atari's Jim Wilson will executive-produce along with Nick Reed and Zwart.

I loved this game. I always made the best roller coasters, haha to bad none of my customers would ride them cuz they were to scary. I dont know how this game is going to transfer into a movie.

This is ridiculous. I loved the games, but I don't see how they're going to make a movie. Sounds just as stupid as the Guitar Hero movie.

I don't understand...I remember playing this game back when I was in like grade 5, it used to come free in the cereal my mom used to buy for me (and therefore I probably had a stack of the same game disc). But how are they going to turn it into a movie? And more importantly, why bother? I mean sure, it's not gonna be the world's most expensive movie (which, if it's Avatar, totally wasn't worth that kind of money), but even so, I can't even really see any sort of point to this. Give the money to starving kids in Africa or people living with AIDS or something; better spent on them than on a steaming pile of rubbish.

Sounds worse than the Guitar Hero movie.

Only interesting part would be seeing coasters fly off the tracks in a "freak accident"

Wow.... they just keep on running out of ideas for movies every day..... reminds me of that southpark episode when Cartman was AWESOMEO and he made over 1000 movies featuring Adam Sandler.

I kept making coasters that pulled more G's than a fighter jet. People didn't want to blackout during the ride. Pussies.

Best bet on this: Direct to DVD. This seems like an idea that they have contracts signed for, but can't make it good, so they cut their losses and go direct to DVD.

It should be about the guy who owns the amusement park, and after using many pre-designed rides that made the amusement park extremely successful, he decides to design his own rollercoaster.

And things go horribly wrong. Like the "Shuttle Loop", that had only one looping, and you could set the launching speed. And if it was too high, the cart would fly off the rain, killing everyone in it and then no one dared to go into it after it was fixed. And the story continues how the poor owner has to invest millions into advertising campaigns to get people to come to his amusement park again. And he's so occupied with that that his wife leaves him for another and then....

This Rollercoaster Tycoon movie is Oscar material I tell you.

Is this a joke ?

How would this even work ?

Nope. Can't see this happening at all and there is absolutely no chance of me even watching it if it does come to be a reality.

Its not like this movie is going to be like the game. The game had no storyline. The 1st mission: A run down park. 2nd mission: A worse run down park. 3rd mission: A shitty worse run down park. You get the picture.

The movie will be a millionaire buying a run down park and making it into the next DisneyWorld or something. Its not like they will show all the janitors sweeping puke off the paths lol

A great game. I recently bought RC2 for 4.99. Ah, nostalgia. Still a ton of fun too ha. But how they can even convert this into a movie is beyond me..

I think I agree. Or what about the kid that got stuck on the single tile and couldn't move? Or the people that you "accidentally" placed in the lake? I'm thinking this going to be an awesome movie.

Firstly WTF

secondly I want death by rollercoaster...it was always hilarious when a coaster went off the tracks and blew up......then no one would ever ride it after that and I would have to demolish it and make a new one:(

and then I always liked picking up people and dropping the in the lake and killing them


this post makes me sound like I have problems...I am not a serial killer
