Sometimes movies are based on video games and sometimes video games are based on movies. Usually in the latter's case, the release of a game coincides with the movie's premiere, or precedes it a little to help generate interest in the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Digital entertainment has decided to eschew convention by digging into its library of past movies that it will then adapt into "casual games." Just how far back are they digging? Try twenty-two years, for starters.
One of the first of Paramount's movies slated for adaptation is Pretty in Pink, the 1986 teen girl anthem from John Hughes that starred Molly Ringwald as the redhead with the endlessly rosy wardrobe. As of yet, there are no details about the plot of the game. Maybe you have to navigate the perilous halls of high school without benefit of money or status, get the cute rich guy to notice you, and turn a perfectly decent vintage prom dress into a shapeless pink abomination, all before the timer runs out. I just hope you get to choose what character you want to play. I'd want to be Duckie so I could flip off Andie and Blane right from the start.
