The plotline for the Asteroids film has been detailed a bit thanks to a talk IGN had with the producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
“It’s funny because people say there’s nothing in the game, but that’s not entirely right” he said. “I was attracted to Asteroids, plain and simple, because I think what it tells you is that there’s going to be this big thing in space.
“We’ve crafted a really strong, deep mythology for the thing. Without divulging too much about it, it’s two lead characters – two brothers – who have to go through a seminal experience to figure out their relationship, against this huge backdrop.”
