An “Invaders”, Possibly From Space Film

Taito and Midway’s classic 1980’s arcade game “Space Invaders” is getting a film treatment says Heat Vision.

Ranked as the top arcade game of all time by Guinness World Records, the game first came out in 1978 and featured rows upon rows of alien ships raining laser death upon a lone player who took cover behind slowly disintegrating blocks.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Odd Lot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker will produce and have optioned the film rights. The pair are now on the hunt for a writer to come up with a story.
