Game Boys was a proposed film that was to be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films for Walt Disney Pictures and written by Tom Ropelewski and Evan Katz.
The story would have followed two thirty-something video game junkies recruited by the Department of Homeland Security to lead a geeky army of gamers in a battle against creatures that have come to life from a video game they have mastered.
Why It Was Cancelled
- The cancellation reasons are unknown.
- As of now, there are no updates reported for the film which was announced in May 2006. It will likely remain development hell for years and was likely cancelled.
- It possibly could have served as inspiration for the critically acclaimed, Wreck-It-Ralph, as well as the infamous film, Pixels.
