Twitter Sparks Fortnite Movie Rumors

Before we discuss reports that Epic Games are making their way into the world of Movie and TV, we must discuss the recent rumors that have been circulating on Twitter.

On Saturday, October 23rd, a parody account of the popular DiscussingFilm account posted some false information about an upcoming Fortnite live-action movie.

DiscussingFilm is a trusted a reliable source when it comes to all things Film and TV, having amassed over 280,000 followers on Twitter. However, there is a parody account that often fools many as being the real thing.

Their most recent attempt at trolling Twitter came when they posted an announcement that a live-action Fortnite movie is in development, and will reportedly feature explicit scenes.

Considering Fortnite has always been aimed at a younger audience, this shocked many fans that believed it to be true. However, the account is a troll parody account and should not be trusted.

But with that out the way, is Epic Games actually planning on developing a Fortnite movie?
