Universal Plans “Asteroids” Film Adaptation

Universal Pictures has won the film rights to the classic 1979 video game “Asteroids” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The game featured a spaceship that had to shoot down incoming asteroids to avoid collision, that’s about it which means there’s no backstory and a lot of creative freedom for Matthew Lopez who is adapting the script.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce. No other names or schedule dates have yet been set.
