Yes, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to Space Invadersand has a trio of names to produce a film based on it. This, despite the fact that some bad Adam Sandler-Kevin James joint called Pixelsis meant to come out next year and with clear Space Invadersinspirations.

Anyway, I assume some old Hollywoodmen were thinking back to their first heart attack as they sat in a hospital bed watching Runawaywith Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons (KISS) and thought, “Hmmm, maybe we should make a movie from video-games.”
