In case you've been wondering how would a story be crafted around a game that consisted - literally - of a white triangle shooting down white circles in a single black screen, don't woryy: we've got the answer for you.
In a recent interview, Lornezo di Bonaventura, the Asteroids film producer revealed some details about the plot of the upcoming movie.
"It's funny because people say there's nothing in the game, but that's not entirely right," he said. "I was attracted to Asteroids, plain and simple, because I think what it tells you is that there's going to be this big thing in space. We've crafted a really strong, deep mythology for the thing. Without divulging too much about it, it's two lead characters -- two brothers -- who have to go through a seminal experience to figure out their relationship, against this huge backdrop."
Bonaventura then affirmed that the movie will also " have some guys in spaceships blowing stuff up, or else you haven't honored the fun of Asteroids."
