Peter Berg may be crying out “You sank my battleship!”
The filmmaker is in talks to direct a big-screen version of the Hasbro board game for Universal. Brothers Jon and Erich Hoeber have signed on to write the script.
The game, which began in pencil and paper form in the early 20th century and is now available on platforms from cell phones to computers, consists of two players arranging a variety of ships on a grid. The game proceeds in alternating salvos as players try to “sink” the opposition’s ships by guessing where they sit on the grid.
I’m really not all that surprised, what with a Monopoly movie and Hot Wheels movie on the horizon, but Jesus, aren’t there any original ideas out there anymore? What kind of person would want to see this?
