Verbinskis Second Life

Pirates director plans virtual reality drama.

Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski may soon be entering the virtual world.

According to web sources, Verbinski plans to produce and possibly direct a project based on one man’s crippling addiction to a virtual-reality website, a la Second Life.”

The project will be adapted from the 2007 Wall Street Journal article “Is This Man Cheating on this Wife?”. The article by Alexandra Alter focuses “on the toll one man’s virtual marriage is taking on his real one and what researchers are discovering about the surprising power of synthetic identity.”

Verbinski is also attached to direct game-to-film adaptation “BioShock”.
