Confession time: Though I owned the game, I never really played Battleship growing up because I kinda thought it was boring. The only time I would ever pretend to be interested was if someone else was playing, because then I would jump in between and yell "You sunk my Battleship!" over and over again until someone punched me. Ah, the trials and tribulations of my awkward childhood. Years later, it seems Hollywood (and more specifically Universal) want to try to turn Battleship into an action-packed summer blockbuster, and Variety tells us that Hancock director Peter Berg has signed on to steer this mega ship toward a July 1, 2011 release date.
