Following the announcement of “Tetris The Movie”, Halfbrick Studio’s popular mobile game, “Fruit Ninja”, is also being made into a movie.
According to an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming film will be written by scriptwriter duo, J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani.
Lavin and Damiani are known for writing the black-list script for Chuck Sambuchino’s fictional survival guide, “How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack”. The mobile game-turned-movie will be produced by Tripp Vinson and his production company, Vinson Films, in partnership with the game’s developer.
Although there is no indication of what the feature film will be about, The Hollywood Reporter stated that it will be a family-friendly live-action comedy that centres around “ninjas with an inexplicable vendetta against produce”.
So far, no casting details or a release date for “Fruit Ninja” have been confirmed yet.
Released on 21st April 2010, “Fruit Ninja” is a popular mobile video game created by Halfbrick Studio in Brisbane, Australia and it requires players to slice various pieces of fruit by swiping their finger across their phone’s touch screen.
The game is now available on multiple platforms such as iOS, Android, and Xbox. To date, the addictive fruit-slicing game has been downloaded over 1 billion times and it is the 2nd highest selling iOS game of all time.
