Many of your favorite games have made it on the big screen. Popular games like Ouija, Clue, Battleship, and even Dungeons & Dragons graced the silver screen.

Now the best selling puzzle game Rubik’s Cube is in development from Hyde Park Entertainment Group and Endeavor Content.

According to Deadline, these production companies plan a big feature but lacking details on whether it is a narrative movie, documentary, or animation. Hyde Park’s current feature slate included an Arthur Ashe biopic, animated musical Pashmina, and a romantic comedy remake Remote Control.

It is likely the potential Rubik’s Cube film may be a narrative feature.

“I’ve had a personal and nostalgic connection to the Rubik’s Cube from my early days in India,” said Priya Amritraj of Hyde Park Entertainment in a statement. “I am thrilled to partner with Endeavor Content and Rubik’s/Smiley and look forward to creating a wonderful and complex Rubik’s universe.”

Also, Hyde Park is under development in creating a game show centered on the game toy with Glassman Media.

The Rubik’s Cube was invented by Erno Rubik in 1974 and licensed as a toy in 1980 to Ideal Toy Corp. To date, Rubik’s Cube sold over 450 million cubes worldwide. Since 2018, there are amateur and professional “speedcuber” tournaments that battle their chance to compete in the Rubik’s Cube World Championship Finals in Boston.

This isn’t the first time the popular toy tried to be on the big screen. The movie concept was shopped around as far back as 2010 but to no fruition.

It’ll be that an obvious plot for a narrative film will be with a prodigy competing in a Rubik’s Cube tournament setting similar to the popular Netflix series Queen’s Gambit. Whether or not the film is a success, it can easily translate to millions of toys sold due to nostalgia and popularity.

What do you folks think of a narrative film?
