Space Invaders movie optioned

Asteroids producer on board.

People are trying to make a Space Invaders movie.

Producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Odd Lot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker have optioned the rights from Japanese publisher Taito and are after a writer to come up with a story, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Good luck with that, guys.

di Bonaventura is a producer on the Transformers and G.I. Joe movies. He is developing a movie based on arcade game Asteroids, too.

Again, good luck with that.

Pritzker's Odd Lot is behind thriller Drive. He is also a producer on Ender's Game, the movie of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi novel.

Square Enix released the Taito-developed shoot 'em up Space Invaders Infinity Gene on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in September 2010.

Before that, though, Eurogamer's 2009 review of Xbox Live Arcade game Space Invaders Extreme shot down a 7/10.
