Scarlett Johansson Might Star In Gamergate: The Movie

Zoe Quinn's memoir is getting the silver screen treatment.

The frightening underbelly of the gaming world which reared its ugly head a little over year ago is finally getting the movie treatment.

"Crash Override: How To Save The Internet From Itself," the memoir of independent game developer Zoe Quinn -- the first of several women who were systematically harassed, doxxed (that is, her personal documents were released online), threatened and eventually driven from her home -- has been acquired for cinematic production, per Deadline.

Reportedly, Scarlett Johansson tops the list of actresses in consideration for the role of Quinn in the project, which might be titled "Control Alt Delete."

For those not familiar with Gamergate, which is an on-going controversy, it all began when the "Depression Quest" creator was the target of 9,425-word blog post written by her ex-boyfriend which accused her of striking up a relationship with a gaming journalist for the sake of earning positive reviews for her work -- an accusation which was later proven false, BTW.

Certain members of the gamer community then unleashed a series of cyber-attacks on Quinn and, subsequently, other women involved in the industry.

Quinn subsequently battled back by creating Crash Override, an organization that provides anti-harassment security and support for victims of cyber-bullying but told MTV News "there's still a lot of work to do" to improve online safety.
