Okay, Hollywood. We know that games are providing you with plenty of scope for unoriginal story ideas and a ready-made audience, but as insane tie-ins go, this has to take the biscuit. And the piss, arguably. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ender's Game producer Gigi Pritzker have optioned the rights for Space Invaders from Taito and are seeking a writer to adapt it into a feature film.

Space Invaders. Is nothing sacred?
