A truly interesting spectacle is being prepared. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, there is another popular game series will get a cinematic production. However, most likely no one expects that it could be about… Pac-Man!
Yep, you have read that right. According to the information made available, it appears that the script for a live-action Pac-Man movie will be loosely based on the original concept, which Chuck Williams is preparing.
He is the animator of The Little Mermaid and producer of the film Sonic. Lightning Fast. The functions of producers of the upcoming project include Manu Gargi, Andrew Calof and Justin Baldoni.
Given that the Pac-Man game series does not center around a human protagonist, we can confidently assume that the film will take the form of a hybrid of animation and live-action events.
The story concept should not be convoluted. Will evil spirits attack, and will Pac-Man have to stand up for humanity? We’ll probably get just such a thing.
The Pac-Man is a computer arcade game produced and released by Namco in 1980. For the most part, this game was developed by Namco employee Tōru Iwatani.
At first the pronunciation of the title was Pakku-man and was inspired by the onomatopoeic phrase paku-paku taberu. Later, however, Iwatani decided to change the title to Puck Man.
The title was not accepted in English-speaking countries due to too much resemblance to the profanity of fuck. Thus, they decided on the title Pac-man, which, on the other hand, was closer to the original title.
