|Wait, what's this movie about...?|
Early screenplay ideas seem to revolve around a Rubik's Cube competition of some sort, a la The Wizard, only less Fred Savage-y. There are already lots of smartass alternate ideas being tossed out in the blogosphere, but I'll add my two cents: the story of a serial killer who leaves a different colored block on each victim, and it's up to mathematical genius detective Denzel Washington and his attractive, loose cannon female partner to find him before the puzzle is complete. Wait, I feel like this movie has been made before...crap. Maybe add a train somewhere--Denzel's up for that lately.
By the way, this is far from the first nostalgic game to be dragged out of that musty box in the basement for an attempt at a quick and forgettable Hollywood paycheck. Battleship, Monopoly, Candy Land--no family-time staple has been left unsullied. It's really just a matter of time and waning public interest in Transformers sequels before we get "Rock, Paper, Scissors: The Movie."
