The producer behind 's box office-smashing Gravity and the Harry Potter movie series is apparently in talks to bring the popular Imangi Studios video game Temple Run to the big screen.

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...
