Universal gets movie rights to a video game…

Posted by ALmod on July 3, 2009

…and it’s Asteroids.  Really?!  As in…  Asteroids?!

The best comment on this came from Woody over at GU Comics:

“Set in the deepest reaches of space, you are the pilot of a sophisticated starship beset by alien vessels and massive rock structures. Your only saving grave is a high tech phaser array. Okay, enough of that snarky bullshit. There was no backstory. There was not plot at all. You were a triangle, shooting dots at jagged, roughly circular polygons that would break up into smaller, jagged, roughly circular polygons.

“I don’t know what shocks me more. The fact that Universal would buy the movie rights to Asteroids or the fact that they had to beat out 3 other studios to get them.”

I think this is how you know that the Hollywood trend of making movies from video games has probably gotten a little out of hand.
