Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to Bring "Console Wars" to Theaters

Posted Monday February 24, 2014 5:40 PM GMT

Targetting an often untapped market of millions of gamers, Sony Pictures is adapting the book "Console Wars" for the big screen.

Attached to both write the screenplay and direct are Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, though the book isn't even scheduled for release until August 2014.

In the business thriller, the story of Sega's attempt to overthrow videogame giant Nintendo is chronicled.

Expecting broad interest, Atlantic Books' publisher Toby Mundy says, "Blake Harris's amazing book has all the narrative drama of the work of Michael Lewis and Ben Mezrich. It should appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike."
