A Pac-Man movie? Really?

Hollywood... ugh

In what must rank among the stupidest and most pointless acquisitiones ever, international production and distribution outfit Crystal Sky has inked a deal with Namco for feature film rights to, er, Pac-Man, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Yes, Pac-Man. "There is no other game title bigger than Pac-Man," says the firm's president Steven Paul. "From children to their parents, Pac-Man is a name everyone knows and loves." Worryingly, there are plans afoot to squeeze a "live-action fantasy adventure" out of the harmless franchise. So, another aspect of our collective youth falls to money-flustered morons in suits. Shame.
