Four Studios Fought For the Rights to the Asteroids Video Game?

Do you remember the Asteroids video game? It's one of the most basic video games ever. The player has to shoot asteroids with his or her tiny spaceship and avoid being smashed. Video games have come a long way since the Asteroids days, and yet some folks in Hollywood are very anxious to bring Asteroids back — in movie form. In fact, Universal just won the rights in a bidding war against three other studios.


Maybe there's more to this video game than I can see because it seems like a lot of fighting over something that doesn't really inherently provide a story. Now, Pac Man I could understand. There's romance and dangerous chases! But Asteroids? Huh.

A movie originating from a two-dimensional game with vector graphics. I wonder if this will be as bad as "Wing Commander".
