Adam Sandler has been cast in the Chris Columbus directed film Pixels, and Josh Gad (Frozen) and Kevin James (Grown Ups) are also in talks to join the production. Jennifer Aniston is also wanted for the female lead, but scheduling conflicts may keep her from doing it.
Pixels was a short film that blew up online back in 2010 and Sony quickly snatched up the rights to it, so they could develop it into a feature film. The short depicted several classic 1980s video game characters attacking New York City.
It was previously reported that the studio was looking to turn the movie into a "Ghostbusters-style action comedy in which characters come out of a video game to wreak havoc in the real world." There's no word on who the actors will be playing in the story, but it's sure to be a fun flick!
The director of the short, Patrick Jean, is executive producing alongside Happy Madison Productions producers Sandler and Jack Giarraputo.
