Today's news you might've missed:
Soon enough, we'll be writing the headline: "Your entire childhood: It's becoming a movie."
But if Pac-Man could potentially become a reality series, then who's to say Space Invaders couldn't be developed for the big screen? According to the Hollywood Reporter, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Gigi Pritzker are developing a project based on the game, which was released in 1978 and holds the Guinness World Record as the top video game of all time.
How soon the two will be able to ship "Space Invaders" into theaters will depend on how quickly they can find a writer - they're still searching for a scribe who can spin the game into a plot worth watching.
A potential problem, THR points out, is the fact that "Space Invaders" doesn't come with any lore that must be adhered to, so while the production team doesn't really have to worry about pleasing gamer fans, they still have to figure out how to create a story around the shooter game.
Everyone wants to know what Casey Anthony will do when she's released on July 17, but it won’t be heading to the set of "The Jerry Springer Show."
Although a report has claimed that the longtime talk show host offered Casey a cool $1 million to appear on the show along with her parents and brother, Springer’s denying it.
“There is absolutely no truth to this story whatsoever,” a rep for the show says in a statement. “‘The Jerry Springer Show’ has not made any monetary offer to Casey Anthony and her family to appear on the program. Nor will we.”

Over the Fourth of July weekend, I was a traitor to my home country. It started at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night with a huge fireworks display and it ended, ironically, at a British bar in Santa Monica.
I drank, stuffed my face with grotesque volumes of barbequed meat products and celebrated my adopted country’s independence from my motherland. I didn’t go as far as to wear my stars and stripes underpants because 1) I don’t own any 2) who wears underpants? and 3) where would the stars go?
But I still celebrated Independence Day with the best of them, as I like my adopted country a hell of a lot. One thing that struck me, though, was how much the celebrations actually reminded me of home.
