It’s been a long time coming, but that Pixels short film you enjoyed so many years ago now has a fate assigned to it. When an amorphous multi-colored blob busts out of a TV, it begins to turn the world and everything in it into cubic reductions of their previous forms while a cast of classic video game characters helps with things. A brilliant concept with more insane compositing, Adam Sandler bought the rights to make it a full film when it debuted in 2010 and it’s languished in development hell ever since.
Now The Wrap has word that Chris Columbus is going to be tied to direct the film as soon as next week. Remember him? Home Alone? Jingle All The Way? The first two Harry Potter films? Yeah, right… that’s going to be an adventure. Well, good luck Sandler!
