Zombies to eat neighbors on big screen?

One of my all-time favorite video games is "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" for SNES. The game's plot centers around a couple of in the midst of a monster attack on their town. They have to save their neighbors and fight creatures with squirt guns and weed wackers while indulging in references to numerous B-movies. Some of the names of the levels include: Lumberjack Hedgemaze Mayhem, Mars Needs Cheerleaders, Chopping Mall and Destroy all Vampires.

Well, this game is being turned into a movie! Despite the fact that turning a Super Nintendo game into a film will require a lot of creative licensing from the filmmakers, I'm happy to see this seemingly underrated classic game get some recognition. And seeing a movie about this is something I've wanted for a while (full disclosure: I wrote a script based on the movie for a screen-writing class in high school.)

I'm also excited for this, as I'll finally get to see what happens at the end. This game was hard as fuck and I could only get to level 40 or so out of infinity.
