Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie

by Paul Strauss

As far as I know, the entire plot of Space Invaders is “increase speed, drop down, and reverse direction!” But making vapid and obtuse movies based on popular franchises is what Hollywood does best these days, so I guess I wasn’t too surprised when I heard there’s a Space Invaders movie in development.

According to a report from Deadline, New Line is getting closer to starting production on said film, based on the 1978 Taito arcade game. Greg Russo (Mortal Kombat) is said to be writing the film, while Akiva Goldsman (Fringe, Star Trek: Discovery), Joby Harold (John Wick 3), and Tory Tunnell (Robin Hood) are responsible for producing this future trainwreck. I haven’t been this concerned about pixels being on the big screen since, well, um, Pixels.

Seriously, Hollywood folks, what particular strain of sativa are you smoking these days? I suppose these 8-bit characters have just as much potential as any of the other one-dimensional crap we see on screen these days, but I’m not optimistic.
