The list of films
based on video games is long, if not particularly distinguished. The list is about to get a bit lengthier thanks to an upcoming collaboration between Gaia Interactive
and Radar Pictures.
The two firms have just released a new press blurb trumpeting the fact that they've formed an alliance to bring Monster Galaxy
to the big screen. What the heck is Monster Galaxy
, you say? Well, it's a Facebook title that "has reigned as a top 10 game on the platform for six consecutive months," according to the release.
The film version of Monster Galaxy
will feature its unique "Moga" characters as well as "rich story and charming artwork." Gaia Interactive was founded in 2003 and claims to be one of the world's most active social gaming communities. Radar Pictures is owned by Ted Field, an entertainment executive with producer credits on films including Pitch Black, The Last Samurai, and Jumanji.
