Temple Run movie on the cards at Warner Bros.

Wednesday, 13th November 2013 02:38 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Warner Bros. is working to bring endless runner Temple Run to the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is in negotiations with Harry Potter producer David Heyman, and plans for a story of demonic forces on the tail of an idol thief. Imangi Studios’ casual app is one of the most popular games on the App Store, and has produced a sequel as well as licensed spin-off Oz the Great and Powerful.

    They already made this movie. 30 years ago. It was called Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and starred a guy named Indiana Jones who looks remarkably similar to the running guy in Temple Run.

    Anyway, in the first scene of the movie Indiana Jones steals an idol from a temple, and then has to run away with it. Spoiler alert: he later finds the Lost Ark of the Covenant, which some Nazi’s open and unwittingly unleash the Wrath of God, melting their faces. It’s great.

    @1 LOL exactly. So they are going to make an adventure movie based on a game that was clearly a tribute to Indy… Wow…

    @1 Shh ., don’t give them ideas.

    As an avid movie -goer in th’ 18 -35 demographic with 2.5 children
    an’ 0.8 dogs what I really want is a full spectrum transmedia experience
    that strengthens core IP and branding across platforms. I could care less
    about eating monkey -brains ., not to mention aspiring to their intellect.

    I’m really hoping for a conventional 3 -part action movie structure with a
    white Judeo -Christian male hero an’ bad guys wearing turbans. We just
    don’t see enough o’ that these days: turbans. We blame Muslims for so
    much an’ movies should maintain parity. How else to justify bombing th’
    crap out o’ countries so we can extract th’ oil & lithium for our PS4s?
    I hear computer graphics are pretty cool too nowadays.
