I’d swear I wrote this very article over a year ago. Oh, that’s because I did write about Hollywood producing a Space Invaders movie in March before last. The only difference is now it’s a done deal and the principal players have changed.
What once was old is new again, at least as far as movies based on video games. Universal is developing an Asteroids movie. Fox is developing a Missile Command movie. Producers have been trying to get a big screen Joust and Pac-Man movie off the ground for years now.
