"This will definitely be a bigger-budget studio version," King of Kong producer Beau Flynn, also returning for the adaptation, told Variety. "But there's no reason for it to be hugely expensive."
King of Kong opened in just five theaters on August 17, but has been creeping to other box offices around the country, and will eventually reach a somewhat wide release. Check out the film's Web site for more information or details on additional theater dates.
Shacknews recently viewed the movie and can verify its cinematic worth as a mile-a-minute-laugh-train-roller-coaster-thrill-ride.
Good flick. Go see it if you can.
