Variety says that Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Year ZeroFlash Gordon) will write for Fox, with Peter Chernin producing through Chernin Entertainment. What’s the story? No idea. Sure, there was some BS backstory invented for Missle Command when the game was ported to home consoles like the Atari 2600 and 5200. But there’s no reason to expect that it will be carried forward to this film.

Of all the old games to go to films (video or otherwise) that’s the one they’re going with?
