Hollywood Wants to Leap into Hell


Studios vie for unannounced game rights

According to Variety, four studios are duking it out for the right to an Electronic Arts video game that hasn’t even been publicly announced yet.

The game, which is expected to launch late next year, involves a journey through the depths of hell.

EA hasn’t officially titled it yet, though it’s likely to be called Dante’s Inferno, as it’s a modern interpretation of the epic poem.

By Thursday evening, Universal, Paramount, New Regency and MGM were battling for the property, after Warner Bros. dropped out earlier in the day.
