The Madden Curse has been ongoing for years, plaguing players that have appeared on the cover of EA Sports’ football games. But to the publisher, it all seems like funny business.
A report on The Wrap website indicates that Electronic Arts is moving forward on development of a film called Madden Curse, a comedy that focuses on a quarterback who becomes the star of the game after he retires, but then finds himself back on the football field, contemplating just what might happen to him. Sounds like the Brett Favre story, but fictional, you know? Pat O’ Brien, VP of EA Entertainment, will serve as one of the film’s producers.
No word yet on who’s going to be in the movie or who’s directing it, as it’s still in early pre-production. Still, if the guys that wrote Vampires Suck or Disaster Movie are anywhere near it, count us out.
