"Space Invaders" Video Game Movie is Moving Forward

Posted: July 8th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Space Invaders" Video Game Movie is Moving ForwardSubmit Comment
About a year ago, it was reported that Warner Bros was in negotiations to acquire feature film rights to "Space Invaders" video game. Now comes word that the deal fell apart and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers) and Odd Lot Entertainment's Gigi Pritzker (The Spirit) have teamed up to pick up the rights.

"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.

The game doesn't have a built-in mythology, so it will be up to the writer to come up with a story. Di Bonaventura and Pritzker are now searching for a writer to take on the challenge.

"The game doesn't have a built-in mythology"

And if it did it would be thoroughly ignored or misunderstood, so the writers will come up with a new, and idiotic, story regardless.

Space Invaders is classic game but it being turned into a movie?

Come on, there are so many games that should be turned into movies like Halo, Metal Gear Solid, Call Of Duty, Gears Of War, Infamous, Kane & Lynch, Warcraft and many more.

If Hollywood started to think about that idea then the studios wouldn't remake great classics.

First Highlander, then Terminator, then Commando and now The Crow.

These movies are cult and movie classics and shouldn't be remade by any studio.

This has already been done and was a huge suckfest. Somehow I dont see a reboot/remake being any better. This game doesnt make a good movie.

Making a movie of a game that has no built-in mythology? What's the point? just to be able to use the name "Space Invaders" and say that it was "adapted" from the game?? Sounds like an absolute rubbish...

Didnt that make this into a movie already? Independence day, mars attack, Battle LA, invasion of the body snatchers, war of the worlds, etc...There isnt anymore art in this world
