- Action film director Jerry Bruckheimer, who recently indicated that he will produce the film adaptation of Ubisoft's Prince of Persia, this week indicated that he is planning another video game-related movie. The film, Game Boys, is written by Tom Ropelewski and Evan Katz, and it tells the story of two thirty-something video game enthusiasts who marshal an army of other gamers in order to combat monsters from a video game that have mysteriously come to life. Bruckheimer Films' Mike Stenson and Chad Oman will executive produce.
Sounds like an echo of the Last Starfighter—or a comedic version of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, which is also in the pipeline for a big-screen adaptation. Wolfgang Peterson, director of the thrillingly competent Poseiden, is set to helm that one.
Update: Speaking of the Last Starfighter, check out this page about the Last Starfighter arcade game, which has what looks like most insane heads-up display of all time.
