Joust Going To The Silver Screen?
For those of you who don’t recall Joust, it was more or less a game where warriors riding gigantic bird-like creatures (think the world’s first Chocobos) jousted on a series of platforms. Like most arcade games of the early 1980s, the game wasn’t overly complex and lacked any deep story.
Lacking a strong story, one would wonder how such a game will spawn a movie.
Cerenzie calls the new script by Marc Gottlieb "Gladiator meets Mad Max." The film is set 25 years in the future and includes a Las Vegas suspended in mid-air.
"We've updated the game into a commercial, tent pole movie," said Cerenzie. "Marc has done an amazing job in creating a tantalizing and filmic world based on the original game."
