Universal Studios is planning a movie adaptation of Battleship, the popular board-game invented by Clifford Von Wickler in the early 1900s. Director Peter Berg (who once brought us Hancock) has been hired to helm the project. The film is scheduled for a release on August 5, 201.
The film may claim some legacy from the board game, but it isn't exactly your grandfather's Battleship: plot details of Battleship have been revealed, and guess what, the plot involves an alien attack!
"A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals."
Director Peter Berg told more about this upcoming Battleship movie:
I'm not sure to understand how battleships and cruisers could fight against mighty alien invaders who are able to cross the void between the stars... But I suppose that Director Peter Berg will still manage to make the film entertaining and interesting to watch.
The movie Battleship will go IMAX, and will most likely be in 3D, or at least have some 3D sequences.
