Electronic Arts announced today that it's planning to "significantly ramp up" its film and television slate with the help of leading Hollywood talent and literary agency UTA (United Talent Agency). UTA will aid EA in developing "a comprehensive strategy for moving its intellectual property into the realm of large-budget motion pictures and television series."


Although no specific IP is mentioned as being attached to the deal, franchises highlighted in the press release include Army of Two, Need for Speed and upcoming titles such as Dead Space and Mirror's Edge both of which had positive buzz from E3.

I think the franchises they listed (except for Need For Speed -- don't need a Fast and Furious rip-off) could be interesting movies.
