Moviefone caught up with Billy Mitchell, the "Donkey Kong" game record-holder who appeared in the 2007 documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters," to talk about how his life changed since the film was released.
There has been talks of New Line Cinema turning the documentary into a feature film with director Seth Gordon (Four Christmases, The King of Kong) at the helm. Mitchell confirmed that there is interest in a feature film, but doesn't know if there has been any progress.
He is also asked how he feels about being portrayed as a villain. Watch the video below to hear his reply, which includes a part where he says that he is now being recognized by fans 7 days out of a week, a jump from being recognized only 6 days per week before "King of Kong" was released.

I just watched The King of Kong on christmas day. It was a really awesome doc*mentary. I freakin' loved it and have since made my mom and buddies watch it. Its hard to imagine a movie like this could be so damn inspiring lol
Team Wiebe, for sure. I just wanted to strangle Billy Mitchell.

The only thing I take from this:
Look at the guy's raised hand. It looks strange. Maybe he was trying to do the Vulcan salute. It just looks all scrunched up and weird.
How long would it take me to become King of Call of Duty I wonder?
I haven't actually seen this, although a few of my friends have and said it was pretty good. Anyone else recommend it like Warriors?

I'm telling you, if this guy doesn't sell child pornography out of his garage then Shannon Price doesn't have Christ's last meal between her legs.
I could be watching The King of Kong ... Exit Through The Gift Shop ... The Fog Of War ... Why We Fight ... Valentino, The Last Emperor ... Secret Origin : The Story of DC Comics ... Z Channel : A Magnificant Sensation ... Lightning In A Bottle ... Tyson ....
Nah, I'll dumb it down tonight .... The King of Kong it is.
