GamerGate – The Movie

runPascal Pictures (die Produktionsfirma hinter den kommenden Ghostbusters- und Spiderman-Reboots) hat sich die Rechte an Zoe Quinns GamerGate-Buch Crash Override: How To Save The Internet From Itself gesichert. Scarlett Johansson hat angeblich bereits Interesse angemeldet. Ohmygawd. 😱

The movie deal was based on a proposal titled Control Alt Delete, and tells the story of how Quinn, creator of such hip interactive games as Depression Quest, was targeted by a digital mob bent on upending her life when a blog post by her ex-boyfriend went viral. It sparked the widely-discussed Gamergate controversy and took a surprising turn when instead of running, she decided to fight back. It is a very inside look at gaming and nerd culture and what happens when one gets caught in the gears of that machine.
