Autobahn scribe F. Scott Frazier has been tapped to rewrite Asteroids, Universal Pictures' action-adventure film based off the classic 1979 Atari arcade game.
Universal has been developing the project since 2009, when it won a bidding war for the movie rights to the game - which features a spaceship in an asteroid field, with the player's objective to shoot the giant rocks hurtling at it in order to avoid annihilation.
Matt Lopez, Evan Spiliotopoulos and Jez Butterworth have all wrote earlier drafts of the Asteroids script. The film is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
