Sony Making A Movie Out Of...Rollercoaster Tycoon

There are currently plans to make movies based on World of Warcraft, Gears of War and BioShock. Those all make sense. But a new deal that hopes to make a film out of family strategy game Rollercoaster Tycoon? Um...

Sony Pictures Animation has picked up the rights to the game, which was published by Atari and has been quite the hit amongst more casual gamers.

It'll be a combination of live-action and animation, will be written by David Ronn and Jay Scherick (The Zookeeper), with Atari's Jim Wilson an executive producer and Harald Zwart - the man behind the Karate Kid remake - hoping to direct.
