Movie Rights for Space Invaders Optioned Out
Yes, that headline is true, the Hollywood movie rights for Tecmo’s arcade classic Space Invaders has had its rights sold to film producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Gigi Pritzker. While this means absolutely nothing when it comes to a Space Invaders movie actually happening, it means that it could happen.
Right now, the duo, who are known for their work with The Transformers and The Wedding Planner, are lining up a writer for a script. Apparently Warner Bros. had been working on a Space Invaders movie in the past, so no word on what the hell is happening with that one.
