Some of the video games that have gotten film adaptations over the years make perfect sense. Despite being critical and commercial flops, titles such as Mortal Kombat and Super Mario Brothers were popular enough that no one was surprised when big-screen versions were released.
However, one game that most people probably forgot all about is apparently getting a makeover for movie theaters. According to Vulture, the arcade classic Spy Hunter is finally in the works, with Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer attached to helm it.
There’s nothing wrong with you if you don’t remember Spy Hunter. After all — it debuted in 1983, and despite sticking around in bowling alleys, bars and video arcades for years, it doesn’t have the same staying power as something like Street Fighter.
It’s difficult to say what the movie will be about. The game involves piloting a car on busy street while hunting spies and other enemies. The player can shoot and adjust speed, so there’s a good bet that some character will do the same when the film adaptation ever comes about.
