Asteroids Movie Plans

The Hollywood Reporter has word on plans for an Asteroids movie, odd enough news to stand out in the world of movie adaptations for video games, which are known for inspiring head-scratching. They say Universal won a four-studio bidding war to pick up the film rights to the classic story-free Atari arcade game and that the feature adaptation will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who is also producer on G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, so he obviously enjoys a challenge.
