This isn’t a joke, a Hollywood producer actually thinks he has a massive 3-part story idea based on a game about falling blocks.
As the game has no plot and is nothing more than a puzzle, the only game idea I could see being less conducive to the blockbuster treatment would be Pong.
Many years back, I started a thread on Hollywood entertaining the idea based on the
Hungry Hungry Hippos game, fortunately it never showed up in theaters. If they are this starved for ideas, perhaps it’s time to stop thinking about how to gross a billion dollars and look to the creative indie community to farm directors from.
I’ve heard of many tenuous movie ideas before, but they do seem to know how to raise the bar in absurdity.
