Crystal Sky gets 'Pac-Man' fever, buys film rights
Nov. 05, 2002
"Pac-Man," the quintessential '80s video game, might find its way to the big screen -- no doubt with Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde in hot pursuit. International production and distribution outfit Crystal Sky has struck a deal with "Pac-Man" developer Namco and Japanese distributor Gaga for feature film rights to the legendary arcade game. Crystal Sky is developing the video game into a live-action fantasy adventure. No writer or director is on board. "There is no other game title bigger than 'Pac-Man.' From children to their parents, 'Pac-Man' is a name everyone knows and loves," Crystal Sky president Steven Paul.
