Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is in negotiations to join Adam Sandler in the upcoming retro video game invasion film Pixels. The movie will be directed by Chris Columbus and will also star Kevin James and Josh Gad.
The movie is based on a short film of the same name that sees several popular characters from 1980s video games attacking New York City. According to The Wrap, the heroes of the film are "a group of video game experts who are recruited by the government to help deal with the threat."
If cast, Dinklage will play the film's fourth lead role, who will most likely be one of the video game experts. The actor recently played the villain, Bolivar Trask, in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
