Warner Brothers Buys Reddit Comments

Source: hustlersquad.net

Yes, that’s right, the Holywood giant Warner Brothers bought the rights to a series of comments on Reddit. What was so special about these comments? When one user asked, “Could I destroy the entire Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus if I traveled back in time with a modern U.S. Marine infantry battalion or MEU?” in AskReddit, another user took it upon himself to write a story about that exact situation. The result: a story, titled Rome, Sweet Rome, that has attracted attention from creatives at Warner Brothers.

Since then, the story is not being developed on Reddit any more, thanks to Warner Brothers’ lawyers.

Check out the portion of the story written over 8 days on Reddit here.

I haven’t read the whole story yet, but what I have read is pretty good. It’s a great idea, and it’s not surprising that a studio bought up the idea. We’ll see if it ever gets made, though.
