Arcade Game Joust Being Adapted
You thought video game adaptations from recent years were bad (e.g. Doom)? Now they're adapting an arcade game that originally appeared in 1982 into a live action feature film. Midway Games' Joust is getting the treatment from producer Michael Cerenzie. In the game you control a knight who flies on an ostrich and fights flying buzzards. How are they going to make this into a live action feature film, who knows?
The new production company that Michael Cerenzie co-founded says that they'll specialize in adapting graphic novels, comic books, novels and video games. The company is also currently producing an adaptation of the classic arcade shooter Area 51.
I don't even know what to say to this. This is probably the most far-fetched idea I've heard in years. I can understand adapting video games like Hitman or Halo that have a coherent story and a detailed universe, but Joust is just a couple of guys riding ostriches on a black screen. What has Hollywood come to?
