Kids like to play games. I bet when you were younger, all the kids in the neighborhood would occasionally gather together at night for some various activities like hide and seek, ring and run or, my personal favorite, manhunt. However, at the end of the day you return home to your comfy bed and all is safe. But, what if the game was still going on?
Well, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies are looking to tap into that feeling (sort of) by picking up The Game of Sunken Places, based off Matt Nix's pitch which was inspired by the Scholastic Press book by M.T. Anderson. Story revolves around two boys who "discover that the housing development where they live is in fact a gigantic game, and that the mysterious developer is a representative of a supernatural race that is testing humanity's worth." Why do I suspect this game is one that these kids would rather not play?
