Theme Hospital

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theme_hospital

Who owns this property now, and who can I persuade to create this for the iphone?

Anyone else a fan of Theme Hospital? I think this would be golden with touch controls.

Bullfrog was bought by EA so I assume EA holds the rights. same with Dungeon Keeper and some other great games by Bullfrog

It would be so great if they re-created the old theme games like theme park, hospital, sim theme park (favorite classic game) or some other theme simulator/tycoon game, those are really fun. I hope EA reboots its classic franchises and licenses for the iphone.

Don't forget Populous and Populous 2 while we're talking classic Bullfrog titles.

Wrong section, and no, a single post on an internet forum cannot persuade a developer to spend large amouts of money and time on a game.
