Simmers, it looks like the beloved computer game is set to be turned into a live-action movie! Margot Robbie is reportedly making all our childhood dreams come true by making a Sims film.

There's no denying that The Sims raised an entire generation. Ever since the first edition of the iconic game debuted in 2000, people have been obsessed with it. Whether you're building your dream home, taking your own fictional family from rags to riches, or simply going on a murderous rampage, there are countless ways to entertain yourself in The Sims universe.

Now, The Sims is reportedly coming to the big screen for the first time and Margot has been tipped to produce it.

The Sims 5 is officially in the works as sneak peek is revealed

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Sims will be helmed by Kate Herron who has previously directed episodes of Sex Education, Loki and The Last of Us. As well as directing the project, Kate will "co-write the screenplay" with Briony Redman who is also a writer on episodes of the upcoming season of Doctor Who.

Elsewhere, it's been revealed that The Sims movie will be produced by Roy Lee and Miri Yoon of Vertigo Entertainment as well as Margot Robbie's production company LuckyChap. To date, LuckyChap have produced hit films including I, Tonya, Promising Young Woman, Birds of Prey, Barbie and Saltburn.

Electronic Arts (EA Games), who publish The Sims, will also be heavily involved in the project.

Of course, the whole internet is living for the news. Here are just a few of the reactions.

Who will be in The Sims cast?

As it stands, no casting information for The Sims movie has been revealed as it's in the early stages of development. That being said, we need a live-action Bella Goth in this movie as well as appearances from classic Sims families such as the Landgraabs and the Calientes.

Whether or not The Sims will be a meta-film like Barbie is yet to be seen but with Margot involved, we have no doubt that it will live up to the game.
