New Line has hired Greg Russo to write the script for the movie version of the classic 1978 Taito arcade game Space Invaders. Warner Bros purchased the rights to the game rights several years ago. Weed Road Pictures’ Akiva Goldsman is producing alongside Safehouse Pictures partners Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell. No details on the movie plot details but in the game, a series of blocky aliens descended from the top of the screen to the bottom, and players basically blasted them until their thumbs cramped, or the invaders succeeded in overwhelming the slow-triggered defender of earth.

Shown below are some prototype images for the upcoming figma Space Invaders figure from Good Smile Company which was posted to twitter via video game company TAITO. It looks like the figure will be on hand at this weekends Wonder Festival 2019 (Winter) convention. The figure is based on the classic 80's arcade video game, and specifically on the artwork that was shown on the classic arcade cabinet. These guys didn't actually look like this in the actual game. It will be interesting to see what colors are used in the final version or if it will incorporate translucent plastic being these guys are basically made up of energy.
