Latest Game to Get The Movie Treatment? Fruit Ninja…

It would seem that another generation of movies will seek their inspiration from another form of entertainment, our video games. With Warcraft already getting the movie treatment alongside the likes of Assassin’s Creed and the popular mobile app, Angry Birds, it would appear that the movies based on video games are just starting with the likes of Tetris getting a trilogy in the future and now it would appear that even Fruit Ninja will join us on the big screen.
The latest announcement comes with news that it will be advertised as a live-action family comedy based on a bunch of ninja with a vendetta against fruit. Simple enough plot isn’t it? Given that the game is the second highest-selling iOS game ever, it will be interesting to see how they’ll turn something as simple as slicing fruit with a flick of your finger into a full-blown movie.
With the movie in the works, it could be a year or two before we see it hit the big screen. Are you excited for the concept of fruit killing ninjas or do you feel like companies are just taking advantage of the increasing number of gamers to create movies left right and center?
