Army of Two, the co-operative based shooter, is set to be made into a movie.

Universal Pictures and Electronic Arts have signed off on a deal to make the feature film, with Scott Stuber (Welcome Home, Role Models) and Roscoe Jenkins as producers.

The film’s crudentials have been boosted by the addition of screenwriter Scott Burns, co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum.

“Army of Two is a great project that has already attracted top name talent, and we’re glad to be working with Electronic Arts on making this hit game into a film franchise,” says Universal Pictures president Donna Langley.

While receiving mixed reviews, Army of Two grossed over $100 million in sales since its release in March. The third-person shooter will be EA’s second film project on a video game IP, the first being The Sims, produced by 20th Century Fox.
