Not satisfied with aiding in the creation of the childhood-stealing Transformers and G.I. Joe movies, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura has teamed up with Odd Lot Entertainment's Gigi Pritzker to bring Space Invaders to the silver screen. Oh joy.
When last we checked in with the Space Invaders franchise, Warner Bros. was looking to option the rights to create a big budget picture based on the iconic rows of descending sprites. Apparently that deal fell through, and now Lorenzo di Bonaventura has added the 1978 arcade classic to his to-do list of franchises to screw up. Lorenzo also served as the producers on Transformers and G.I. Joe, and is working on a remake of Pet Sematary and the Asteroids film. This is obviously not a big fan of original ideas we're dealing with here.
