Universal Wins Movie Rights For EA's 'Inferno' Game

Universal outbid Paramount, New Regency, MGM and Warner Brothers for the movie rights to a new Electronic Arts game based on Dante's Inferno. Who cares, right? Wrong, dummy. What's so interesting about this bidding war, is that the game's title, plot, genre, platform(s), and even its very existence have yet to be announced by EA.

As we have seen with, say, every video-game-to-movie adaptation ever made, a good game does not necessarily translate into a good flick. By the same token, just about all movie-to-video-game adaptations also = suck, even when the source material was hotness. (Go on and disagree with my sweeping generalizations in the comments, I really do read them.)

Maybe, just maybe, EA will make a cool game, and Universal a good movie based upon it. At the very least this is an interesting new twist in the troublesome movie-with-a-game dance.
