Maybe they can get Michael Bay to direct

Joystiq notes that the Castlevania movie is now back on track (and is Uwe Boll free.) But that’s not the only video game adaptation coming from the same studio. No, they also have the PAC MAN license! Yes, the hottest video game license from the early 80’s could be coming to a screen near you. (No word on if it’ll incorporate the continuity from the TV show.)

Joystiq offered this (fake) pitch:

It’s the year 2185. Human life has been all but eradicated, and sole survivors scramble to collect resources in a labyrinthine cave of unknown secrets. Using their spherical harvesting pods, each team takes a turn gathering. But something goes horribly wrong as one expedition team gets trapped and is forced to finish its mission while running away from haunting memories of the past…

What would be your pitch for a Pac Man movie? Remember, Hollywood is thirsty for the next brilliant remake script!

  1. When he awoke he was the last one alive, no memory of where he was from or who he was. Only the words “Planetary Alignment Consortum” oh his jacket are his only clues to get his life back, but is it a life he would want back?

    Follow this P.A.C. man as he navigates a maze of dark corners and ghostly characters as he tries to piece together what went wrong, and the discovers his true purpose.

  2. Awesome!

    I’m hoping our P.A.C. Man has to pop some pills at a crucial moment to defeat the ghosts that haunt him.

  3. take more pills pill head

  4. Wow, ummm, I kind of like that idea Steve. Now I want to see it made, GO!
