Warner Bros. May Create Space Invaders Movie

Posted By Ben Goulding, 4 March, 2010 | permalink

For a lot of people, Space Invaders used to be a game countless hours would be wasted on trying to beat that impossible high score, but in today’s vastly technologically superior world, many would say that Space Invaders is an out-dated thing of the past. Those people may have a point, but Warner Bros. thinks otherwise – they want to put the classic arcade game onto the silver screen.

Warner Bros. is negotiating to acquire feature rights to the landmark shooter from Taito, the Japanese company that originally manufactured the game.

It’s not surprising that Warner Bros. would look to jump-start a Space Invaders movie; last summer the studio bought Midway, the video game’s U.S. publisher (which does not control theatrical rights), and also is developing a feature of another video game, “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.”

If Warner Bros. can make a Space Invaders film, then why not make a ‘Tetris’ one? Alternatively, I can see huge appeal for ‘Pong’ on the silver screen.
