THR is reporting that Warner Bros. is planning to develop a movie adaptation of the endless running game with as the producer. The movie would reportedly adopt the (pretty basic) premise of the game, too:
The story would center on an explorer who, having stolen an idol from a temple, is chased by demonic forces. The studio will next look to attach a writer to adapt.
Hopefully, Warner Bros. will hire a writer stat, because it could be quite the task to concoct a story out of a fairly minimal game.
Movie adaptations of video games are hardly a new phenomenon, but adaptations of mobile games few and far between. Recently, only Angry Birds has tempted a big-screen adaptation. Temple Run is in a similar category to those wingless feathered fiends - and Heyman needs to get seriously creative when it comes to a storyline and an ending for this feature film - if you've played the game, you'll know that there's not really any way to win, and the explorer always ends up dead...
