Margot Robbie’s production company has revealed its newest film project: adapting the cherished virtual realm of “The Sims” into a cinematic experience!

Yes, you heard it right, a film adaptation of the iconic computer game is in the works. Margot Robbie’s production company, “LuckyChap,” will collaborate with Roy Lee and Miri Yoon of Vertigo Entertainment, building on the success of their previous project, “Barbie.”

The Sims stands as one of the highest-selling life simulation video games ever, with nearly 200 million copies sold globally. It is a simulation game of life where players manage avatars with customizable characteristics, abilities, and interpersonal connections, guiding them through everyday activities such as cooking and interior decorating.

Enthusiastic fans are adamant that the movie should exclusively feature “simlish,” the nonsensical language spoken by characters, without any subtitles, as they believe this is crucial for authenticity and immersion. Since its inception in 2000, the franchise has transcended its initial suburban setting through various sequels and expansions.

LuckyChap Entertainment, known for creating projects such as Barbie, Saltburn, and Dreamland, is led by Margot Robbie, her husband Tom Ackerley, along with Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr. Currently, LuckyChap stands out as one of the most sought-after production companies in Hollywood, propelled by the billion-dollar triumph of Barbie and the widely discussed R-rated film “Saltburn,” directed by Emerald Fennell. Next in line is the comedy “My Old Ass,” which garnered significant attention at the Sundance Film Festival and has been acquired by MGM Amazon.

Kate Herron, renowned for her direction of the first season of the innovative Marvel series Loki, is set to collaborate with Briony Redman in writing The Sims. Their past collaboration includes writing for the BBC’s “Doctor Who” series.

At its core, The Sims shares common characteristics with Barbie. Both lack a predefined narrative, instead allowing characters to lead their lives, albeit under the control of players. Barbie, as a toy, also lacks a fixed storyline, embodying various careers and roles that players dictate. The announcement regarding The Sims follows closely after Barbie’s impressive performance during the 2024 awards season, where it received numerous accolades and nominations. The comedy, inspired by the popular Mattel doll, achieved a remarkable global box office revenue of over $1.4 billion.

In an interview, Robbie stated that she feels confident continuing to make movies because of the success of Barbie, which she knew would be a hit.

“I think my pitch in the green-light meeting was that the studios have prospered so much when they’re brave enough to pair a big idea with a visionary director,” she said.

“And I was like, ‘And now you’ve got Barbie and Greta Gerwig,'” Robbie added. 

“And I think I told them that it’d make a billion dollars, which maybe I was overselling, but we had a movie to make, okay?!”

No casting details have been disclosed for the film, and an official production studio has yet to be finalized.
