The point I'm getting at is this: Mafia Wars is being made into a movie, which I believe makes it the first Facebook game to get a feature development deal (don't quote me on that, and I'm sure Farmville is close behind). Details are scant on the project, as what could the details possibly involve besides the logline, "crime thriller based on the popular video game." Ted Field and Radar Pictures are developing the project, and given Radar Pictures's recent output -- Swing Vote, The Invention of Lying, All About Steve, Everybody's Fine, and The Box -- I wouldn't buy a lot of HSX stock based on the idea. The project is being inputted into scriptwriting software out to writers now.
