Console Wars (Movie) - Rogan And Goldberg To Produce Gaming Console War Movie

Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg are teaming up to produce a film that chronicles the gaming console wars from the early days. The film, called "Console Wars", is based on the book by Toby Mundy of the same name.
Blake Harris draws on hundreds of interviews to present the first full account of this titanic corporate battle, which transformed computer games into a global industry that last year recorded sales of $50 billion (surpassing the film and music businesses combined).
Sony Pictures and Scott Rudin (Moneyball, The Social Network) are developing Console Wars as a feature film to be directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Knocked Up, Superbad). Rogen and Goldberg are also writing the screenplay. Harris is serving as Executive Producer, and is also co-directing a documentary on the same subject, with Rudin, Rogen and Goldberg producing as well.
Atlantic acquired UK and Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) from Carolyn Bodkin at HarperCollins US.
