Paramount Pictures has just greenlighted a film titled “Atari”, yes, you guess it, a film about the Atari, one of the very first videogame systems to ever being invented in this planet. This is not really about the Atari videogames, this film is actually a Nolan Bushnell biopic. Nolan Bushnell is the creator and the inventor of the Atari videogame console. Dicaprio is signed to play the role of Nolan Bushnell.
The very first videogame ever made was a game called “Pong” which I used to play as a child all the time. The movie “Atari” will be about the life of Nolan Bushnell. According to research, Nolan Bushnell the real man himself, is still alive and well.
No director has been signed yet to the film.
Hmmm, when this movie comes out expect videogame systems like the PS3/Xbox to re-release all the old classic Atari games to help promote the film.
The Atari was one of the coolest videogame systems on this planet. I was addicted to that thing when I was a kid. My favorite games were “Pitfall”, “Warlords”, “Asteroids” and “Yars Revenge”.
