Producer Compares "Asteroids" Movie to "Star Wars"

Producer Compares "Asteroids" Movie to "Star Wars"Submit Comment
ComingSoon caught up with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who spoke about developing a big screen version of Atari's "Asteroids" video game, which he says cannot be translated into a movie.

"When I was called about the property - I was called because of what I've done with 'Transformers' and 'G.I. Joe,'" he said. "Atari reached out to me and said, 'We have Asteroids,' and I had an immediate reaction 'Yes.' The reason was not because playing the game, we thought somehow that game could be translated into a movie, it can't."

He continued: "The word 'Asteroids' connotates a large-scale experience, so the challenge, which was great, was 'Okay, so how do you get a mythology that will support that?' We really went after a mythology on the level of 'Star Wars' and we'll see if we succeeded or not but it's not a simple thing of the asteroids are going to hit the earth. We never come to earth. The entire movie takes place in the asteroid field. We do some homages to the game for sure, but I like the sense of scale."

Di Bonaventura promised that movie-goers will finally find out about the aliens inside the UFOs that attack the hero.

The only homage they can make is blasting up asteroids. Why? Because that's all there is!

This would be better if:

1. Stretch Armstrong were in it... using his abilities to save planets (and thus civilizations) from asteroid destruction.

2. He flew around space in a Battleship.

3. Currency... Monopoly $'s (of course).

4. None of these ideas were ever made into movies.

5. Lick my balls Hollywood!
