News you cannot hide: Facebook's Mafia Wars game will be turned into a movie

“What’s more ludicrous than a film about Facebook?” you asked: An adaptation of the Facebook game Mafia Wars is on its way to the big screen, according to those perennial bearers of bad news at Pajiba. Radar Pictures—the production company behind All About Steve and The Box, whose motto is obviously “when you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose”—is said to be shopping the concept around to screenwriters right now, looking for that elusive someone who can finally turn the mafia into a piece of filmed entertainment. Here’s hoping the finished product is the story of a small-time hood who tries rising through the ranks of organized crime, only to be abandoned by everyone he’s ever known because they all find him super annoying now.
