FarmVille is coming to the small screen.

Director Brett Ratner has signed on to produce a half-hour animated TV series based on the hit Facebook-based virtual farming game.

According to reports, he's signed on to work with a Canadian production company called Six Eleven Media.

Brett Ratner is best known for directing the Rush Hour films, as well as Red Dragon, X-Men: The Last Stand. Ratner has over 30 film and TV producing credits under his belt.

"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,” said Ratner in a statement.

Earlier this week, Zynga posted Q4 revenues of $1.28 billion, a 12% increase year-over-year - but a quarterly loss. They also reported that Daily and Monthly active users were down since Q3, six and four percent respectively.

They also reported that they would be shuttering some of their games in order to cut costs including CityVille 2. FarmVille 2, the sequel, has been a success for Zynga however.
