The writer of several upcoming video game movie adaptations has been signed up for a big screen version of Space Invaders.
Russo is behind the scripts of several upcoming video game movie adaptations including the rebooted Mortal Kombat, which is due to start production later this year.
Russo’s Mortal Kombat movie is set to release on March 5, 2021, Warner Bros. recently confirmed.
The movie will be produced by Aquaman director James Wan and helmed by Simon McQuoid, who was behind a popular live action PlayStation commercial. The film will begin shooting in Adelaide, Australia later this year.
The movie’s release date puts it on a collision course with a live action Masters of the Universe film from Sony Pictures, a fantasy adventure starring Noah Centineo as He-Man.
