Casual game Mafia Wars might make movie fodder. Twenty-five million people play it! That doesn't mean it will in fact be made into a movie. Yet.


A report stated that Mafia Wars was being developed into a movie with studio Radar Pictures, which would mean Mafia Wars is the first casual Facebook game to be turned into a feature film. This report, however, is apparently false.

Radar exec Mike Weber has told website Risky Business that this rumor is not true, joking, "It's starting to sound like a good idea for a movie". Hollywood, clogging up people's Facebook feeds one movie at a time.
