After an aborted attempt by Warner Bros. to get a live-action movie adaptation of the classic Taito and Midway arcade game Space Invaders in production last year, it now appears as if the top arcade game of all time (according to the Guinness Book of World Records) will get another shot at the big screen. According to THR, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers) and Odd Lot Entertainment's Gigi Pritzker (Drive) have paired to option the theatrical rights to the game, with plans to develop the property into a movie franchise. The producers are currently searching for a writer for the movie.
