"Space Invaders" Video Game to Become a Movie

Posted: March 3rd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Space Invaders" Video Game to Become a MovieSubmit Comment
Now that "Missile Command" is set up at 20th Century Fox and "Asteroids" is in development at Universal Pictures, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to make a "Space Invaders" movie.

LA Times is reporting that Warner Bros Pictures is in negotiations to acquire feature rights to the game. If the rights issues all work out, the project would bring on Hollywood producers like Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan), Jason Blum (The Reader) and Guymon Casady (The Expendables).

Space Invaders was the iconic game that helped start it all, a Japanese-created arcade title from 1978 that featured roving attacking ships raining vertical fire on the player's craft, which dodged and fired back. It later vaulted to prominence via the Atari 2600.

Why have they chosen so many senseless old video games for movies and ignored the obvious one, Pitfall?

For f*ck sake!

Why make movies on f*cking arcade-games with no plots and ignore the sh*tload of good games just waiting for being adapted. Have Hollywood learned nothing from Wing Commander?

Tetris, Colums, Bejeweled, Donkey Kong...and yes, even Tic Tac Toe. All coming soon to a theater near you!

Pass it around. NObody go see these movies. If you know someone going; maybe his teeny-bopper bitch promised his a crotch-rub (through the jeans, not under them) - not enough. Threaten to set his pets on fire!

Let these sh*t projects crash and burn in empty theaters.

Who said this was going to happen? Freudian, you? Or was it Actionfigure?

Make Contra at least. Or Ninja Raden (or how was it called).

Here's an idea! Make Comics Zone! That was an awesome game and you love comics, Hollywood!

Never that much of a fan of the game so don't care either way but I am leaning towards nno for some reason- I knw alot of you guys & gals on here hate (some) remakes and I include myself in that but how about remaking Super Mario Bros I remember the movie and it was awful so how about it? I mean Hackwood are always remaking good movies into sh*t ones maybe they can do this in reverse.
