Universal to make Asteroids film

Should be a belter.

Atari has given Universal Pictures the nod to create a film based on the Asteroids IP.

Matthew Lopez, writer of Race to Witch Mountain and The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura - producer of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and GI Joe: The Rise of the Cobra - are confirmed as onboard, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

There are no details on plot or cast, although the licence involves little that the film studio must actually follow - the original arcade game had no plot, just a spaceship and some rocks.
