Move Over PIXELS, Warner Brothers To Produce SPACE INVADERS Film

Well THIS should be interesting... It seems as if we'll see some 8-bit aliens in todays graphics, as Warner Brothers has nabbed the rights to classic arcade game Space Invaders. While they don't have a director yet, they have some producers signed on, which you can see after the jump!


Unfortunately, this will cost more than a couple of quarters to see. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy classic arcade game Space Invaders as much as the next person, but it seems as if Hollywood is running out of ideas. Read on below to see who's signed on to produce the upcoming film project, as well as some other films they've produced!

According to The Wrap, Warner Bros. Pictures has gotten a hold of film rights to the classic 1980s arcade game "Space Invaders," which has recruited some risky producers, for what will be a risky movie.

Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend, Winter's Tale), Joby Harold (Awake), as well as Tory Tunnell (Holy Rollers) have all signed on as producers of the film. What are your thoughts of the project? Do you have hope for the film? Whatever your answers are, leave them in the comments below, and to check out the original article, you can find a link to it below at The Wrap!




Space Invaders is a two-dimensional shooter game in which the player controls a laser cannon by moving it across the bottom of the screen and firing at descending aliens. The player defeats an alien, and earns points, by shooting it with the laser cannon. As more aliens are defeated, the aliens' movementspeed up. Defeating the aliens brings another wave that is more difficult, a loop which can continue without end. The aliens attempt to destroy the cannon by firing at it while they approach the bottom of the screen. If they reach the bottom, the alien invasion is successful and it's game over for you.

Space Invaders is an arcade video game developed by Tomohiro Nishikado and released in 1978. It was originally manufactured and sold by Taito in Japan, and was later licensed for production in the United States by the Midway division of Bally.
