They’ve made a sitcom out of a Twitter feed, it was only a matter of time before they made a movie out of a Facebook application.
Pajiba reports that the strategy-based game app “Mafia Wars” is being turned into a feature film by Radar Pictures (“The Invention of Lying”).
30 million Facebook users each month play the game, developed by Zynga, which allows users to build a crime empire. The action is mostly set in New York but also takes place in international cities like Moscow and London.
Inside Social Games got in touch with Zynga who denied the report, saying the rumor is “untrue”.
