"I've made a huge mistake..."
Take a science-fiction dish, add a dash of romance and a sprinkle of comedy and simmer with one of the most underrated comedy actors currently working today and what have you got? Space Invader (such an original title, no?) , a sci-fi rom-com love triangle set in a space station (oh...right) set to star Will Arnett. For the uninitiated, Arnett plays Gob Bluth, the pathetic failure of a magician, in Arrested Development and he has definitely proved himself as a competent and exciting comedy actor. Here's hoping that he gets a chance to do his "Final Countdown" routine somewhere during the film...The writers, Mike Lisbe and Nate Reger, previously worked on the charming 1990s stitcom, Just Shoot Me (that reminds me, anyone have an mp3 of JSM's theme tune? I love that song). With Arnett also producing, this film may be the vehicle to catupult him to superstardom....and beyond!
