Not keen on live action/CG hybrid films featuring Sonic the Hedgehog or Detective Pikachu?

Monument Valley, the whimsical, Escher-inspired mobile game, is joining a long list of video games getting the film treatment.

Deadline reports that Oscar-winning director Patrick Osborne has been tapped by Paramount Pictures and Weed Road Pictures to create a "live action/CG hybrid" adaptation of Ustwo Game's excellent mobile puzzler.

Monument Valley was released in 2014 and famously featured in Netflix's House of Cards as one of the video games fictional President Frank Underwood enjoyed playing on his iPad.

It continues to chart highly on the App Store and Google Play store.

Osborne has good form in the animated space, winning the Oscar for best animated short film with Feast, the beautiful story of a Boston Terrier he both wrote and directed.
