Josh Gad and Kevin James join the 8-bit arcade armageddon film Pixels

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the world was attacked by legendary arcade video games? Then, you probably need psychological evaluation and need to lay off the ROMs. From One More Production and Patrick Jean comes Pixels, an amazing short film that shows what it would be like if the world was attacked by arcade video games of the past. Watch as buildings get demolished row-by-row from Tetris blocks. Subway stations get gobbled up by Pac-Man. Space Invaders digitize taxis and of course, Donkey Kong throws barrels off the top of the Empire State.

I smell a summer blockbuster!

Who’s laughing now?!  Well probably Patrick Jean and the guys at One More Production because their little retro arcade invasion short is getting turned into a full-blown movie! Adam Sandler will actually produce the film and Patrick Jean will serve as the film’s Executive Producer. Home Alone and Harry Potter director Chris Columbus is slated to direct the film with Role Models Timothy Dowling penning the script. Not much is known about the film storyline, but sources say it will not deviate far from the original short.

With the success of Wreck-It Ralph, I think the general masses are ready for a film like this. No released date is set yet, but we will keep you posted.
