Highly acclaimed mobile puzzle game series Monument Valley has sold its soul to Hollywood and is getting a movie adaptation.

Action!

Well we say ‘adaptation,’ but this is actually going to be a film that combines live-action and CG – it basically revolves around throwing real life people into the game’s Escher-esque levels.

Now that may sound terrible and barely a movie at all, but there are some reasons to be mildly hopeful. One is that Paramount Pictures have got Patrick Osbourne to be the creative force behind the adaptation.

Osbourne has created several impressive short films, and was involved in Disney’s half-decent feature Big Hero Six. Hey, we only said reasons to be mildly hopeful alright?
