Harry Potter producer making Temple Run film

We're Indiana Jonesing to see it.

Mega-selling mobile game Temple Run is being adapted for the big screen.


Harry Potter producer David Heyman has signed aboard the project, Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The free-to-play infinite-runner will be turned into an Indiana Jones-style movie.

After an explorer nabs an idol from a jungley-looking temple, he is chased by demonic forces - which is basically the opening to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The original Temple Run hit 100 million downloads last year and quickly spawned a sequel. That, in turn, was downloaded 50 million times in under two weeks.

Specially-licensed Disney versions followed, and even Usain Bolt make an appearance.
