Sandler to star in 'Pixels'

Punch Drunk Love star Adam Sandler has cast himself as producer and lead in forthcoming comedy Pixels, based on the short film by Patrick Jean. The film follows a group of elite gamers recruited by the Government to fight against a series of 80's video game characters, who are attacking New York City. The film is set to be directed by Chris Columbus, director of the first two films in the Harry Potter franchise.

Also acting as a producer, Sandler hopes to bring together old collaborators into the project - the script is to be written by Just Go With It screenwriter Tim Dowling and there are rumours that former co-stars Kevin James and Jennifer Anniston may have a part in Pixels, with Frozen star Josh Gad lined up for an additional supporting role.
