Remember when Angie told y'all about Monopoly: The Movie? And then she went on a crazy tangent about games she would love to see made into flicks? While she was full of amazing ideas, she did leave out one major game we played growing up. Battleship. Yes Cin-Obs, it's happening. Battleship: The Movie.
Battleship is an upcoming 2012 science fiction naval war film based on the game of the same name. The film is being directed by Peter Berg and will be released by Universal Pictures. Starring in the film are Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam Neeson. The film was originally planned to be released in 2011, but rescheduled to May 18, 2012. The film will involve the Navy's response to an alien invasion. Wikipedia
I would have been A-OK with a U-571ish take on the game, but Hollywood went and made it waaaaay wicked-er (?) by adding the element of aliens. 2 words. Fucking awesome. I don't care how irrelevent aliens are to this classic game, this movie is now gonna kick some major ass.
I know we tend to harp on Tinseltown for pumpin' out remake after remake after sequel after trilogy after book-to-movie... you get the point, but we're super excited about this one. Which reminds me, where the hell is the Where's Waldo movie we've been waiting for?! Sheeesh.
Anyways, Battleship's gonna rock my world... or boat... hmmm. Whatever.
Do the Cin-Obs agree?
