Mark this one in the “okaaaaay…” file, for a Space Invaders movie is on the way.
Via Deadline, New Line Cinema is developing a big-screen take on Space Invaders. As in, yes, that Space Invaders. Y’know, the mega-addictive video game of the ‘80s.
New Line has already brought in Greg Russo to pen the picture, with Russo first tackling the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot for New Line.
For those who may not be familiar with Space Invaders, the basic crux of the game saw players have to blast no-good stinkin’ aliens into smithereens. Formulaic? Sure. Repetitive? Definitely. But man oh man was this a game that was as addictive as they come.
Expect more on Space Invaders as it develops.
