Sometimes dreams do come true, just ask special effects guru and burgeoning director Aaron Sims. His short film, Archetype, looks like a blockbuster Hollywood movie, and now it has a chance to become one. Weeks after Archetype went viral on YouTube (spawning many mirrored copies in several different languages), producer John Davis has bought the rights to turn it into a full length film. Davis, who produced the Will Smith Asimov-esque I, Robot (2004), had recent success with the found-footage sci-fi hit Chronicle. With decades of experience in movies as a special effects designer in major motion pictures (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I am Legend, The Incredible Hulk, etc) Sims will now get a chance to direct the adaptation to his own work.
