Movie to be based off of the 'I Love You' virus.

The movie entitled, "I Love You", based off of the well-known "Melissa Virus" is in post production and scheduled for release some time in 2009. It stars Kristin Bauer, Dean Cain and Briana Evigan.

For those who need a refresher the "I Love You" virus was a worm released on May 4th 2000, that upon infection would mail itself to those on the contact list of the infected. It also made several malicious changes to the infected computer. Its name was acquired from the fact that it was usually sent as an attachment in an email that had "I Love You" as a subject header.

The movie, according to Evigan, is about a Filipino boy who attempts to contact an American girl. His attempts are unsuccessful so his friends suggest that he send out a computer virus. Unfortunately, there is not much information available at this point and time. It is also relatively unclear is the inspiration of the "I Love You" virus is evident solely in the fact that the boy writes a virus, or whether this will be a movie playing on the origin of the actual virus.
