Dofus is being made into a film, World of Warcraft is being made into a film (so i heard). There are no end of films that come from good games, resident evil stands out to me as one of the best. Just wondering what other MMOS out there that you play that would lend themselves well to being made into hollywood style production films / movies?
I would like to hear what MMO you think would make a good film / movie and why... please comment below with your feedback.

Maybe you were wondering the possibility of turning Grand Theft Auto series game into a movie, it's not gonna happen because Rockstar does not have any plan on GTA's film adaption so far. As a matter of fact, vice president Dan Houser says the prospect of one considered, and then quickly tossed aside.
"We don't believe that the Grand Theft Auto games, which are massive in scope and structurally complex, can be adequately compressed into a two-hour movie," he told the LA Times. "It seems obvious to us that maintaining the long-term integrity of any entertainment property has been dependent on not making substandard spin-off products to people whose primary interest is making a quick buck.
"If we ever decide to do a film, it will be because we have resolved our creative doubts, and while retaining enough control to ensure that if the movie is terrible, at least we will know we ruined the property ourselves. Via [ VG247 ]
Completely agree, just take Resident Evil as a counterexample, it's nice to see Rockstar chooses the best way to protect their property.

Fujifilm has officially announced that the world's first compact digital camera able to deliver 3D images and movies will shortly be going on sale in the UK this coming September.
The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 features two Fujinon lenses - each with its own 10MP CCD sensor - that are securely mounted side by side inside a robust aluminium die-cast frame that protects them from movement, vibration and impact.
When using the camera in 3D mode each of these sensors records its own image, which are then fed into the camera's 'Real Photo Processor 3D' image processor.
Here they are aligned, combined and turned into a 3D image that can be viewed on the rear LCD screen without the need for fancy 3D glasses.
Even more impressive, given the need for the focal length of each lens to be aligned precisely, is the fact that the 3D W1 offers a 3x zoom function, giving the user more creative freedom over how they want to capture their subject.
In addition the twin lens configuration of the 3D W1 can be used in 'Dual Capture' mode to simultaneously shoot two standard 2D images at different configurations.
In practice this means the same scene can be recorded at both t

I can’t stop laughing when I was watching Wall-E.
Gathering the rubbish, and compress them into a cube. He cleans the Earth alone for hundreds of years. He is doing the most bored work in the world. But he is the funniest man(or robot) on the world.
The unique hobby of collection, the human-style actions when got up in the morning, the sad eyes, the smart behave in the spaceship, the bi-bi sound, etc. All these make me laugh and then I found I love this rust robot.
Not only the little Wall-E, I love the rest of the film too. After years reading of science fiction, I find the futures in those writers opinion are negative. But the human in Wall-E, with an unhealthy figure, doesn’t lose its humanity. I like it.
I can’t express all the factions that make me think Wall-E is a perfect film. But it is.

Since we never did a Sunday Discussion last week we've got to make up for it big time this week. With the announcement of Crank 3 coming in 3D this morning, I've been pushed to the edge with my acceptance of 3D. You combine that with the endless 3D buzz coming from the industry trade show ShoWest last week, and now I can't let this subject go to rest. With the success of both Beowulf and Hannah Montana, it's become apparent that the industry is starting to develop more and more 3D content and the public is eating it up. However, that doesn't mean it's the future and it's a question I've been meaning to bring up for a while now. Is 3D just an entertainment theme park gimmick or is it actually a feature that could be used to enhance the artistic side of cinema?
Let's start this by looking at this morning's announcement. Crank 3 is the perfect example to prove that 3D is purely a gimmick. Just look at the title, now they can call it Crank 3D! Sure they might like the idea of 3D, but now they can easily change the name to also promote the idea that 3D is in this. And immediately when I hear something like that, I instantly feel like its quality is much lower. It's just my own

The first is the writer of gory old action film 300, Michael Gordon. Former Marvel Studios bigwig Avi Avrad will be producing the project for Columbia Pictures.
That's all according to IGN, which heard from a reliable source that the film should see the light of day in late 2009 or early 2010.
Plot details are scarce, although apparently it will be based around an original story containing familiar faces from the EverQuest world.
EverQuest first appeared in 1999 and was considered to be the first 3D massively-multiplayer online role-playing game around.
Action takes place in the mythical world of Norrath, a realm inhabited by fantasy beasties like ogres, elves, humans and various hybrids.
It was followed in 2004 by sequel EverQuest II, which featured voice overs from famous people like Christopher Lee and Heather Graham.

Publisher takes supplementary sponsorship role with NYAFF; foreign film distributor Dragon Dynasty snaps up "presenting sponsor" slot.
Earlier this week, the New York Asian Filmfest found itself without a primary sponsor, as organizers said Midway Games had backed out of their commitment to the event with no warning and little explanation. Both Midway and the NYAFF have confirmed the publisher is back on board now, although it is no longer the event's primary sponsor.
Midway originally signed on to the festival as a way of promoting its upcoming Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC game Stranglehold, a pseudosequel to Chow Yun-Fat and John Woo's seminal Hong Kong action flick Hard Boiled. However, when Midway representatives no-showed at an appointment with NYAFF organizers to measure a theater lobby for Stranglehold demo kiosks, confusion arose.
The NYAFF told its fan base that Midway reneged on its financial commitment to the show and was no longer involved in any way, shape, or form. When asked about the incident, a Midway representative said the company had to drop out of main sponsor slot because "Stranglehold's development schedule did not allow time to attend," but added that t
