Somehow this is actually happening. David Heyman is set to adapt the popular video game, “Temple Run” into a film. Heyman is most known as being one of the key producers behind the “Harry Potter” franchise and the recent science fiction film, Gravity. So I guess, if this has to happen, he will at least make it look awesome.
According to The hollywood Reporter, Heyman is looking to work with Warner Bros. to bring the mobile game to film.
“Temple Run” follows a treasure-seeking protagonist on the run from demonic monkeys In addition to two tie-in spinoffs (“Temple Run: Brave” and “Temple Run: Oz”), “Temple Run” released a direct sequel, “Temple Run 2,” earlier this year.
“From the makers of the award-winning best-seller ‘Harbor Master’ comes the most exhilarating running game on the App Store,” reads the game’s official description. “Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, and see how far you can run!”
It appears that currently, Warner Bros. is searching for a screenwriter for the project.
