FarmvilleSocial networking game FarmVille is coming to television thanks to X-Men director Brett Ratner.

An animated series based on the popular game has been announced with Ratner serving as executive producer.

Canadian production house Six Eleven Media will develop the project but as yet there is no network attached.

“FarmVille is one of the most exciting brands out there today and its cross-platform opportunities are endless. I am thrilled to be expanding the brand with existing fans and also engaging a whole new audience,” Ratner said in a statement.
