Atari has 'Missile Command' and 'Centipede' films within the works

Atari simply will not hand over the dream of bringing its iconic gaming properties to the large display. Again in 2010 we heard the corporate was purchasing a Missile Command film round Hollywood. It even arrange the undertaking with Fox in 2011 — however that seems to have gone nowhere. Now, Deadline is reporting that Atari is partnering with Emmet/Furla/Oasis movies for Missile Command and Centipede movies. The thought might sound loopy, however let’s not overlook that we lately lived by means of an enormous price range adaptation of Battleship.

Paradoxically, an present model, even one which hasn’t been culturally related for many years, is way extra tempting to Hollywood studios than one thing unique. By no means thoughts that it will be fairly robust to type a coherent narrative out of one thing like Centipede, a recreation that contain capturing infinite waves of bugs.

I would not fret an excessive amount of about these tasks, although. Given how a lot hassle Atari has had with getting Missile Command made, there is a good probability neither of those variations will ever see the sunshine of day.
