Asteroids the movie…really?

I’ve got no problem with people trying to turn  a best-selling videogame into a big budget film. I know there’s not been a great track of successes  but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep trying to get the game to film equivalent of The Dark Knight.

I must admit that with all the story driven games out there  that would lend themselves  well to a film adaptation a game in which you play a floating triangle blasting giant wire frame blocks into smaller giant blocks isn’t the first one to spring to mind.

The game in question is Asteroids and according to an article over at Variety the fim is being developed by Universal. I don’t know what’s scarier – the fact someone thought this was a good idea for a film or that other studios were actually fighting to get their hands on this.

It must be one hell of a script or a very slow week in Hollywood.
