The LA Times is reporting that Warner Bros. are currently in talks with Taito to negotiate production rights to a Space Invaders movie.
Should the project come to fruition, Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan), Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) and Guymon Casady (My Best Friend’s Girl) would be brought on as producers.
So…not Gradius, not Nanostray, not Ikaruga. Space Invaders. Judging by the move, one would conject Warner value the franchise’s nostalgic value, rather than any sort of storytelling potential.
Would you watch a Space Invaders movie?
