EA developing 'Madden Curse' movie - report

Publisher planning sports comedy based on supposed box art jinx

EA is reportedly developing a movie based on the infamous Madden Curse, a jinx that some believe hits NFL players who appear on the box art for the annual American football series with a loss of form or injury.


According to The Wrap, the sports comedy will tell the story of 'a former Madden video game champion who is forced out of retirement just as he finds himself on the corner of the game's cover - and subject to the curse'.

Pat O'Brien, vice president of EA Entertainment, is said to be spearheading the project as one of its producers.

EA Sports' first game for 3DS will be Madden NFL Football, the publisher said last month.
