Alright. Now y’all are actively trying to piss James Cameron off. It has been just days after the cantankerous director blasted movie studios for their greedy antics like creating crappy franchises a la Battleship. Now, Fox has teamed up with Atari to make that Missile Command movie. Probably in 3-D.

No plot details yet, so we can’t tell you who will be shooting colorful lines at Taylor Lautner. Or some other Taylor. Or Dennis Quaid at the very least. But I can tell you one thing. This movie is going to be really, really good. Matter of fact, I’m going to start working on having a child right now so that they may be born in time to see Missile Command in a theater. Because that’s the only real way to experience it. Now, I only need to find a host to carry my future Missile Command super-fan. Any takers, ladies? No. Serious? Wow. Would it help to sway your decision if I were to tell you that I have bad sinuses and wear a pedometer? That’s right. You can hit me up on our Facebook. (Variety)

‘Space Invaders’ Is Now a Movie http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/space-invaders-is-now-a-movie/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/space-invaders-is-now-a-movie/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Video game movies are relatively cheap to make and they come with a built-in fanbase. Also, Milla Jovovich needs the work. I understand that logic. But there are some games that really do not deserve the Hollywood treatment yet they get picked up anyway. Missile Command is one. Asteroids is another. And now Space Invaders is joining the club. From the LA Times:Warner Bros. is negotiating to acquire feature rights to the landmark shooter from Taito, the Japanese company that originally manufactured the game. If the rights issues all work out, the project would bring on Hollywood fixtures Mark Gordon, Jason Blum and Guymon Casady as producers.I'm excited for the day when I don't have to be negative about movie news. A day when the ideas that are presented are original, cool film ideas. But that day is not today. I'm not saying that I'm immune to making bad decisions. For instance, me creating a ketchup and Honeycomb cereal sandwich didn't turn out so well. But I learned a valuable lesson. Also, burned my penis pretty badly on the panini press in doing so.
