Activision snaps up Molyneux flicks title

Live out your Spielberg fantasies in The Movies

Lionhead Studios' next project is to be called The Movies (working title), a kind of Theme Cinema that allows gamers to run their own movie studio, making decisions on what films to make, scripts, sets, directors, and, of course, ac-torrrrs.

The game will be released in 2004 on both the PC and "all videogame consoles", and kicks off in the early silent era of the 1920s, progressing right up to the modern era of massive egos, prima donnas and overblown blockbusters. Any resemblance to real life is purely co-incidental, right Peter?

The worldwide rights to the game have been signed up by Activision, including all future (inevitable) add on packs and sequels.
