Article Available:
The Lolcow Wiki has an article on Zoe Quinn
  1. MOD EDIT: OP is old and lackluster, please read the Lolcow Wiki linked above to read all about what makes Chelsea Van Valkenberg (Zoe Quinn) a lolcow, if you don't want to read over 400 pages of content.

    If this belongs in another thread, my apologies; I looked and couldn't find one to post this in.
    Zoe's GG memoir is being vetted for a movie, which will undoubtedly bring up all the corruption and censorship issues that were never really dealt with.

    Apparently they're trying to get Scarlet Johansson to play the role of Zoe...

  2. Didn't think to look for gamergate, duh on my part. I checked for Zoe, Quinn and SJW as thread titles and didn't see anything that wasn't locked.
    I'm sure she's going to be doing interviews soon, which could be full of ridiculous claims about how she was unfairly targeted by those big bad online gamers.

  3. It's really depressing that this charlatan (and others like her) gets to see so much media coverage. Not to mention the fact that it's just going to make gamers look even worse than they already do thanks to GG. What a progressive era we live in! wow
    Bet you anything they're going to downplay the whole "she was a manipulative cheating bitch and that's why her ex was so upset" angle, too.

  4. Don't forget trampling the Constitution and using a law intended to protect real abuse victims to silence criticism of herself, possibly creating a precedent weakening these tools for real victims.

  5. I wouldn't get my hopes up. They may try to spin this into an movie about a woman attempting to overcome institutional oppression. Hollywood isn't exactly known for strictly following the facts, especially if they think the facts get in the way of a successful movie either critically or commercially. And I think I could see critics blindly praising a movie about a woman attempting to overcome institutional oppression.

  6. Isn't it weird that this book is not even close to being released and there are already talks about a movie? Harry Potter took at least 4 years before the first book turned into a movie. Or is this kind of thing normal?

    Also, for such an important and accomplished gamedev and totally not a con artist, there's been barely no mention or updates about Camp's Not Dead (some FMV game with Greg Sestero) or Rebel Jam. CNP was last updated in November of last year, and who the fuck knows where Rebel Jam is.

  8. Hopefully.

    But what if they get a really talented screenwriter that just takes the bare bones outline of the story and doesn't care about the facts?

  9. What the fuck is there to cover in a movie? Are we going to see 2 hours of Scarlett Johansson checking twitter and looking sad?

    Will she be able to get the cap off?

  10. it's going to be about the GamerGate controversy of 2014. that was when a bunch of men formed an elite team to terrorize women and minorities because they couldn't get laid. Zoe Quinn was the main target because she's extremely attractive and intelligent, which makes men uncomfortable. the movie will document her remarkable triumphs dealing with GamerGate and will hopefully inspire all men to buy point and click video "games" about mood disorders.

  11. Considering some of the people in it are basically real people, portraying them as villains and criminals would make it worthwhile for some contingency lawyer to sue everyone involved for libel.

  12. Forgive my ignorance of law (totally not my bag), but I was imagining something akin to The Social Network. That movie was very well written (One of my fav movies of the past few years, tbh) and definitely unfair to some of the people involved. Why would the case of the Zoe Quinn film be any different?

    Specifically, how would the treatment of certain personalities in the Zoe Quinn film differ from the negative treatment of the Winklevoss twins in Social Network?

  13. They were portrayed as gigantic douchebags, which they kind of are, but not as criminals or anything actionable. Just being portrayed as a douchebag isn't libelous. It's also not like the Winkelvoss twins are shy about suing, either.

    Zuckerberg also didn't come off very well.

    Another major difference is people like Eron Gjoni are not public figures who can basically be criticized at will. He might be a limited public figure of some sort in relation to matters of public interest he's become involved in, but he's not really an all purpose public figure, like Zuckerberg or (arguably) the Winkelvoss twins.

    So without libelous portrayals of a bunch of people Quinn has smeared, you don't really have a movie. Anyone putting money into it would want to water down that shit, so you might have composite characters made up of a number of people and then portray that guy as a villain, while claiming any resemblance to actual people is coincidental.

    Basically, if the movie came out the way SJWs would want it to, it would be libel bait.

    Since nobody wants to wander into that quagmire, though, they'll have to water it down. So the SJWs are likely to hate any libel-proofed version of this story about a swindling con artist being portrayed as a victim.

  14. I guess that just feels completely viable to me. A good screenwriter would know to collapse those people into one non-recognizable character. And the overall narrative wouldn't have to change that much, regardless of how far from reality the film's narrative would stray.

    On the whole, I guess what I am saying is that Hollywood is into using that shit as a means to baiting good reviews (and awards) despite the facts. And I could see them trying to pull that shit in the case of Zoe Quinn.
