UGO's Michael Hess writes from the San Diego Comic-Con 2009 Gamer panel,
"The upcoming Lionsgate film, Gamer, about people controlling people (PCP?) in two different massive multiplayer online games (MMOGs) - one is a FPS-style game, while the other is reminiscent of 2nd Life - is an intriguing concept; that the co-writers and directors admit to playing very little video games themselves is equally so. Though they spent some time on 2nd Life and Call of Duty before the movie, Crank creators Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine openly admit that they're not big gamers.
"We're not big gamers. We played GTA because we were going to write GTA, and we got addicted to that for a couple of weeks, but is was Pac-Man before that.""
