With Universal developing a film based on Asteroids and Fox considering a Missile Command movie, Warner Bros. is looking to bring a classic arcade game to theatres too and is negotiating with Taito to secure feature rights for Space Invaders.

The film studio already has three Hollywood names to attach to the project as producers, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times: Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan), Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity), and Guymon Casady.

As these things tend to do, the idea of a Space Invaders film leaves so many question, like what kind of story can a scriptwriter concoct based on a cannon shooting at aliens that shuffle side-to-side before descending? Will Warner Bros. license a game adaptation of the film? And will the movie feature Rush's "Tom Sawyer" in its soundtrack?
