a baffling concept

They're going to make a movie... of Asteroids.

As opposed to today's games, there is no story line or fancy world-building mythology, so the studio would be creating a plot from scratch. Universal, however, is used to that development process, as it's in the middle of doing just that for several of the Hasbro board game properties it is translating to the big screen, such as "Battleship" and "Candyland."

Of course, I can think of various ways to make a movie out of Asteroids that could be vaguely cool. Candyland is a much more difficult subject.
