New Line Picks Up “Fruit Ninja” Movie

New Line has scored the film rights to the mobile game app “Fruit Ninja” which they plan to turn into a live-action family comedy feature.

The popular game centers around ninjas with an inexplicable vendetta against produce, and is the second top-selling iOS game of all time with over one billion downloads so far. The film will revolve around a team of misfits who are recruited to become Fruit Ninjas in order to save the world.

JP Lavin and Chad Damiani (“How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack”) will pen the script while Sam White and Tara Farney are serving as executive producers. Halfbrick Studios and Vinson Films will produce the project.
