The greatest fruit-slicing game in the world is on its way to becoming a live-action film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “San Andreas” producer Tripp Vinson has teamed with developer Halfbrick Studios for an adaptation of the blockbuster mobile game “Fruit Ninja.”
The family comedy will be written by JP Lavin and Chad Damiani, who penned the adaptation of the 2010 book “How to Survive a Gnome Attack.”
“Fruit Ninja’s” gameplay is pretty straightforward, and highly addictive (it’s clocked more than 1 billion downloads): The player simply slices fruit with a blade controlled using the touch screen. Extra points are awarded for slicing multiple fruits with one swipe, but it’s not exactly the stuff of movie plots — not that any such concerns stood in the way of the “Angry Birds” adaptation, which flies into theaters this weekend.
