‘Gravity’ Producer David Heyman Moving to ‘Temple Run’

Imangi launched videogame in 2011

Hit vidgame “Temple Run” is heading for the big screen, as “Gravity” producer David Heyman and Warner Bros. are in talks to acquire movie rights.

“Temple Run,” which debuted in 2011 from Imangi Studios, is centered on a player being chased by “demonic monkeys after stealing an idol from a temple.”

The game, designed and programmed by Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova, is usually played on mobile devices. Sequels to the original game were released earlier this year.

Warner-based Heyman also produced all eight Harry Potter films and is producing StudioCanal’s “Paddington” with Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

Lynn Harris will oversee “Temple Run” for the studio.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
