Ich hatte keine Ahnung, dass eine Verfilmung des Giant Ant-Games It Came From The Desert ansteht und dem Trailer nach zu urteilen, dürfte die eher ziemlich dämlich werden. Aber egal, it's a Giant Ant-Movie und ich bin definitiv am Start. (via Twitch)
Finnish Roger! Pictures has entered into agreement with US-based legendary game developer Cinemaware to produce a motion picture adaptation of the classic 80's game It Came From the Desert. The action-horror-comedy tells a story of a giant mutated ants which wreak havoc in New Mexico desert. The film will also follow on the legacy of the game and tie into the original story as new characters make an appearance several decades later to discover new horrors.
Roger's Teemu Virta will produce the film, and Tero Kaukomaa of the Iron Sky will be the executive producer. On the director's chair sits Marko Mäkilaakso, who also co-wrote the script with Hank Woon. It Came From the Desert is currently in pre-production for an autumn 2015 shoot and 2016 release. Canadian-based Raven Banner Entertainment heads to the EFM in Berlin with worldwide sales rights to the action-horror-comedy film.
