The nice thing about being quietly powerful in Hollywood is that you get to make whatever you want. For instance, Seth Rogen gets to make a film about the awkward teenage years of video games. The film will be based upon the upcoming book Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, And The Battle That Defined A Generation, and will be written and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the stoner Watson and Crick of Tinseltown.
Of course, when we learn that Rogen and Goldberg wrote the forward for the book, it become clear that this has been in the works for a moment now. Consider Console Wars the first shot fired in a battle of competing video game history films, with the other one being Ready Player One, which, despite having a more awesome title (and being a novel), doesn’t have any big names attached to it.
