Popular '80s videogame Super Breakout is one of the many ongoing game-to-film projects slated for Paramount Pictures.
Plot details are being kept closely under wraps, except for the fact the film is based on a game about using a paddle to break a large wall with a ball.
Purists have decried the authenticity of the movie, pointing out that Super Breakout utilizes two paddles instead of one, but nothing has been altered, insists a spokesman for Paramount. "We're saving the two-paddle concept for the sequel," he claims.
Michael Bay is in talks to direct, while Shia LeBeouf is in negotiations for the role of The Paddle.
