If there’s a crazier headline in iOS gaming news this month, I can’t imagine what it would be. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers is in negotiations to make a Temple Run (Free) movie. David Heyman will be producing it, and if you don’t recognize his name, a quick stroll through his IMDB history will surely yield some titles you’ve seen. Most noteworthy is likely the Harry Potter series.
The movie will focus around an explorer who steals the idol and then is chased by evil forces, similar to the game. That’s really where the story ends so far, but, it seems like anything you attach the Temple Run name to is ridiculously successful so there’s not much reason to think a movie wouldn’t also do well.
If nothing else, it’s insane to think that a husband and wife team can make a mobile game which eventually turns into a movie. That’s flat out amazing, regardless of how good or bad it ends up being.
