Anyone Up for a Space Invaders Movie?

by at . Comments

Warner Bros. is currently negotiating with Space Invaders developer Taito for the movie rights to the classic video game.

Space Invaders Still

The video game was first released in arcade form back in 1978 before gaining popularity as being one of the earliest shooting games featuring two dimensional graphics.

We all know video games have had a reputation of becoming bad movies (thanks Uwe Boll), but can a studio really pull it off with Space Invaders? Maybe they will just pick a script from a pile of generically written alien movies and slap the Space Invaders branding on it.

At least the franchise could make for a better movie than Stretch Armstrong or Erector Set!
