Space Invaders movie in production

According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Gigi Pritker have optioned the movie rights to the 1978 arcade game.

Di Bonaventura, who has previous in adapting 80s pop culture icons having produced GI Joe and Transformers, has also picked up the movie rights to Asteroids.
