Last year, the title "the little indie that could" was bestowed on Little Miss Sunshine, a small independent film that went on to land a Best Picture Oscar nomination and gross over $60 million. This year, that honor was taken by Juno, the offbeat dramedy starring Arrested Development's Michael Cera and Jason Bateman and written by screenwriter du jour Diablo Cody. Budgeted at just $7.5 million, the film is nominated for four Oscars -- Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Original Screenplay -- and has made over $100 million at the domestic box office.
Now, it appears that Fox Searchlight Pictures, the studio behind Juno, looks set to earn even more revenue from the film. Today during the opening session of the D.I.C.E. Summit in Las Vegas, former Eidos Interactive president and current intellectual-property migration specialist Keith Boesky revealed that a casual game based on the film is currently in development.
