Global Thermonuclear War is coming back to the big screen courtesy of the man who brought a battle between two Donkey Kong high score warriors to film. Seth Gordon, director of 2007’s The King of King: A Fistful of Quarters is re-directing WarGames.
In the battle between three men over who is the world’s best Donkey Kong player, a New York plastic surgeon has claimed a fresh victory. Will this barrel-hopping high score war ever end? Not any time soon.
Steve Wiebe, featured in the acclaimed documentary “The King of Kong”, has reclaimed the world record high score for Donkey Kong Jr. after briefly surrendering it to an Oklahoma man.
