JOUST: The Movie? Is this a joke?

GameDaily BIZ is reporting that a new Hollywood production company is making a full-length feature film based on Joust.

Yes, that Joust! The 1982 arcade game that had you flying around on a giant ostrich and jousting opponents around floating platforms.

The movie is being described as "Gladiator meets Mad Max" and is being set in Las Vegas 25 years in the future.

A movie where people ride ostriches... which actually fly... and fight each other. Ok-aaaaaayyy...

I'll withhold final judgment until I see the thing (and who knows, it might surprise us). And maybe it'll be a success and pave the way for other great movies like Burgertime and Dig Dug.
