Paramount Pictures is moving forward with plans to work on a Monument Valley movie, choosing Patrick Osborne to develop to direct the movie, Deadline reports.
Osborne is an Oscar-winning director for the animated short film Feast and has been tapped for Monument Valley, which Paramount hopes to make into a family film series. A Monument Valley adaptation would likely be his biggest project yet.
Monument Valley mostly tells its story in drips and drops, but the game is immensely popular, with over 160 million downloads on mobile devices already. The core of the game is rotating an environment around to bridge gaps and solve puzzles, which would make for kind of a cool 3D film, if 3D movies are still a thing by the time a Monument Valley movie releases.
I am genuinely surprised there is not a Words with Friends movie.
