20th Century Fox is adapating the classic Atari video game Missile Command for the big screen, Variety reports:
Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama are set to adapt the 1980s arcade game that Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark will produce through Chernin Entertainment.
Atari topper Jim Wilson will exec produce the project.
With “Missile Command,” the scribes have little to adapt beyond a title to build a plot around and a Cold War-heavy scenario of players having to defend their cities from being destroyed by a rain of missiles. Game celebrated its 30th anniversary last year.
