Spielberg Signs With EA to Create 3 New Vid-Game Franchises

According to Variety, master storyteller Steven Spielberg will partner with EA Games to bring three new properties to the EB shelves. Production is already underway on the first one, although specific details are, not surprisingly, being kept under wraps right now.

"Initial work has already begun on the first title. EA is keeping it tightly under wraps, though it is expected to be sci-fi or action adventure.

EA will own the games and their underlying intellectual property, including the right to make sequels and license them with or without the director. Spielberg and his Amblin hingle will have first look at developing the games for film and television.

Spielberg previously created the "Medal of Honor" game franchise, first produced by DreamWorks Interactive. It is now published by EA, which bought the studio's game division in 2000."

oooooh that would be sooo cool, imagine a race in first person mode in 3-D on an imax screen! Burnout would make an excellent Imax presentation, rather than a film. plus Spielbergs new founded "technology" which he hasn't told the world about could be used for it.

But personally, Burnout would be better on Imax, not as a full length feature

Err, you guys realize he's creating games, not adapting them into movies right? It's similar to Orson Scott Card coming up with that crappy Advent Rising game.
