Blockbuster film producer Jerry Bruckheimer has become increasingly involved with gaming in recent years; he's the producer on the upcoming film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time runs a game development firm that's currently working on two games. In an interview with HeyUGuys (via CVG), Bruckheimer explains that he sees the differences between games and movies beginning to disappear over the next decade.
"I really believe in the next 10 years you won't be able to tell the difference between movies and games," he explained. "Games will be so realistic. They are a form of storytelling and we love to tell stories in movies and on television. We are about to actively seek some executives. Hopefully in the next six months we'll get started."
Bruckheimer's move isn't that out of the ordinary for the film industry. Famed director/ producer Steven Spielberg, has also dabbled in videogames. Spielberg is credited as the creator of the original Medal of Honor, and more recently he collaborated with EA on the Boom Blox games.
