Electronic Arts Developing Movie Based On The Infamous ‘Madden Curse’

The Movie God   |  @   |

Any sports fan or fan of sports video games has likely heard of the feared Madden Curse. The “curse” comes from the belief that any National Football League athlete who appears on the cover of a Madden NFL video game would be struck with some form of injury or debilitative setback. This hasn’t happened every single year, but it has happened often enough to cause many to become true believers.

Now The Wrap is reporting that the company behind the Madden franchise, Electronic Arts, is taking this phenomena to a new place with the development of a new feature comedy. EA Sports has never believed the curse to be true, but that doesn’t mean they can’t take advantage of its existence in popular culture.

According to the reports, the movie will be about a “former Madden video game champion” (it’s unclear whether this means an ex-football champion or simply a champion of the game itself) who is forced to return to the game just as his face shows up on the cover, which might just open him up to the curse.

Apart from these minor details, nothing more is known about the movie or when we might be able to see it thus far.
