Edgar Wright started the spread of a very cool animated video called Pixels that featured the world being under seige by 8-bit video game characters. It was very creative and very well done.
Now Adam Sandler got his teeth into it and is developing a feature film based on it.
Now comes word that the French filmmaker behind “Pixels,” Patrick Jean, has teamed up with Adam Sandler’s production company to develop a big-screen version of the short.
The project is still in the early stages and has yet to sign a writer, but the plan is to make an action comedy similar to “Ghostbusters.” The idea is that character will come out of a video game to wreak havoc in the real world.
I am very encouraged to see what he does with this.
Check out the original short, which is totally worth it on its own:
