Back in 2004 Tiger Telematics, the maker of the upstart GPRS connected handheld gaming console called Gizmondo, was aggressively pursuing the Hollywood studios for portable gaming and VOD licenses. I don't think any of those deals ever happened and the device was a flame-out shortly after launch in late 2005. Well Gizmondo might be ready for its Hollywood sequel...and this time in a starring role. Mobile Entertainment reported on a Hollywood Reporter story from Wednesday that writer/director Craig Zobel & veteran producer Beau Flynn (Requiem for a Dream, Journey to the Center of the Earth, etc.) are developing a film based upon Randall Sullivan's 2006 Wired article "Gizmondo's Spectacular Crack-up". The article focuses on the copious colorful criminal antics of Gizmondo's Swedish co-founder Bo Stefan Eriksson...infamous for, among other things, wrecking a $1mil Ferrari on PCH. I hope the film actually makes it into production and I hereby recommend that either Michael Madsen, Vincent D'Onofrio or Tom Sizemore play Eriksson and that a fattened up 1st gen nGage stars as the Gizmondo. If the film is released, my guess is that most movie-goers will be surprised to learn that the device and Eriksson are not fictional.
