SPACE INVADERS May Soon March Back & Forth (And Back & Forth) Across Movie Screens!!

Merrick here...
Warners is looking to set-up a SPACE INVADERS movie under producer Mark Gordon (SPEED, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, 2012 & TV's ARMY WIVES and GREY'S ANATOMY).
Warner Bros. is negotiating to acquire feature rights to the landmark shooter from Taito, the Japanese company that originally manufactured the game. If the rights issues all work out, the project would bring on Hollywood fixtures Mark Gordon, Jason Blum and Guymon Casady as producers.
...says L.A. Times HERE. I've owned nearly every home iteration of this game (Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Super Nintendo, N64, XBOX 360, etc.) and played the arcade version incessantly. So, a part of me is nostalgically, illogically dying to see what they come up with here. I hope there's a graphical frame around the movie screen that makes the screen look like the portal of the old arcade game, and I think it would be super-cool to see columns of advancing aliens march back and Digital a cannon shoots up at 'em from the bottom of the screen...while the audience leans left —> right —> left —> right shouting "That one!" and "There! There!" and "Hurry!"'' You know you can imagine that...
