Defend Your Cities: 'Missile Command: The Movie'

February 19, 2010

Using missiles to defend crudely-drawn cities from other missiles. Sounds like a movie plot to me! And to collective Hollywood, too: the LA Times has news that Atari is in talks with Fox and other studios to develop the classic '80s video game Missile Command into a big budget movie. Like last year's news that Universal is developing an Asteroids movie, this is strange, because neither of these games have plots outside of shooting stuff.

Remember when the idea of someone making a Pong movie was ridiculous? How does it feel now that we can't be more than a month away from a feature film about typing 58008 in a calculator?
