Movie News

With news last week of classic video game Shinobi being turned into a big screen movie, not to mention Dwayne Johnson headlining a take on Rampage, now comes word that retro games Missile Command and Centipede are being turned into movies.

Deadline is reporting that the Atari classic are being adapted thanks to a new partnership from Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films. Missile Command and Centipede were initially released in 1980 and 1982, respectively, and the titular rogue of Centipede even appeared in last year’s painfully-awful Pixels.

For those not familiar with these classic of yesteryear, Centipede saw gamers playing as Oliver, an elf whose entire world has been turned into mushrooms by some pesky evil wizard. You’re tasked with fighting off constant waves of deadly insects by using the wizard’s magical wand. As for Missile Command, the game was released amidst the turmoil and terror of the Cold War and saw players defending cities from missile attacks.

Both Centipede and Missile Command will be produced by Randell Emmett and George Fulra, with Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones and Stephen Belafonte on board to executive produce.
