SPACE INVADERS Film Moves Forward with Producer Akiva Goldsman

Warner Bros. has been trying to develop the classic 1980s video game Space Invaders as a feature film for years. The project is once again being pushed forward, this time with producers Akiva Goldsman, Joby Harold, and Tory Tunnell.

Goldsman is the Academy Award winning writer of A Beautiful Mind, and has also worked on films such as I Am Legend, I Robot, The Da Vinci Code, and most recently Winter's Tale. He's a solid producer, and I think the film is in good hands.

There's no information on what story they will tell, but they could basically make it anything they want. There's no real mythology behind the 1978 game, it just featured several rows of aliens  firing lasers at earth, and one ship toggling back and fourth shooting them back trying to stop them.
