Gore Verbinski Takes on Online Fantasy Role-Playing World

Posted: December 17th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gore Verbinski Takes on Online Fantasy Role-Playing WorldSubmit Comment
Universal Pictures and "Pirates of the Caribbean" helmer Gore Verbinski have acquired a 2007 Wall Street Journal article they will use as the basis for a film about the online fantasy role-playing world and its detrimental impact on the real lives of players.

Verbinski will develop the film as a directing vehicle; Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) will pen the script.

The article by Alexandra Alter focuses on a married man who spends as many as 20 hours a day on a computer, existing through an avatar who is a thriving, musclebound entrepreneur. In reality, he is a diabetic, chain-smoking 53-year-old.

Stuff like this is stupid. WoW has 10 million players. They aren't all chain smoking diabetic 53 year olds. Some people are obsessive but most just play it very casually. You can find obsessive people in most areas. The games themselves aren't detrimental. If this guy can play a game for 20 hours straight then he obviously has obsessive tendencies. If it isn't an online game it would be something else for people like him.

yeah i totally agree with u but i think its ok to show peolpe the bad sides of online gaming the things that can happen to u if u dont pay attention if u dont care enough about urself... personally i dont play online RPGs i like games with a story with an aim to achieve i would be bored with things like WoW.... i play GTA IV :D at least it has a cool story and its entertaining

stupid, I respect Verbinski for the Pirates films because they are awesome but this sounds far to much into the realm of stupidity.

This is Verbinki's attempt to be "relevant". He just wants to be the next Michael Moore.

So am I supposed to feel good at the end of this movie, or what?
