The Hollywood Reporter has recently highlighted the striking similarities between Sims and Barbies. The Barbie doll created by Gerta Gerwig in 2023 was manufactured by LuckyChap. Released in 2000, players have the freedom to take control of an avatar and fully customize their appearance, abilities, and relationships. There are no limits or restrictions imposed by a predetermined plot. Playing The Sims is like playing Barbie in that it lets you lose yourself in the fantastical lives of other people.

Adapting The Sims for the big screen has been tried before. Plans for a live-action version of the show were first mooted in 2007 by Fox. Nonetheless, it lingered in production for more than a decade before finally succumbing to its fate in 2019 after the Disney-Fox merger.

There will likely be a delay in the film’s release.
