Warner Bros. has reportedly acquired the rights to make a film based on the 1978 Taito arcade game Space Invaders.
According to The Wrap, the film will be produced by Akiva Goldsman, who previously wrote the screenplays for The Da Vinci Code, I Am Legend and Batman & Robin.
Joining him as producers will be Joby Harold (writer/director of Awake) and Tory Tunnell (producer of Holy Rollers).
No plot details or other cast or crew announcements have been made at this early stage.
Space Invaders is the latest in a number of upcoming Hollywood movies based on video game franchises.
Sony will begin filming the Uncharted movie in early 2015, while the company is also planning to release a number of CGI films based on its games. A Heavenly Sword movie is due out in September, a Ratchet & Clank film in 2015 and a Sly Cooper movie in 2016.
