Adapting with Evan Goldberg.
Sony have confirmed that Seth Rogen and his regular writing partner Evan Goldberg are set to write an adaptation of the non-fiction book Console Wars.
The book, by Blake J Harris, details the famous behind-the-scenes rivalry between videogames giants Sega and Nintendo in the early 90s.
The book has not even been released, but Sony (who somewhat ironically own a rival console which today outsells both Sega and Nintendo) has already optioned the rights.
Rogen and Goldberg wrote the foreword to the book.
Scott Rudin, who also oversaw major book-to-film adaptations Moneyball and The Social Network, will produce. No director is currently attached.
