Space Invaders Inches Closer to the Big Screen

"Space Invaders," the classic eighties Midway arcade game, is heading to the big screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Someday, at least. Big-name producers, who have teamed up to option the rights and develop the project, are currently hunting for a writer. Hopefully they'll find a visionary, as it'll take some creativity to adapt the game's narrative — baby aliens shoot lasers into the sky — into a feature-length film. Actually, what are we saying? That premise sounds like a box-office hit as is. [HeatVision/THR]
