Tim Herlihy to Write Pixels Script

ON

Heat Vision reports that longtime Adam Sandler collaborator Tim Herlihy will write the script for Pixels, the big screen adaptation of French filmmaker Patrick Jean’s web short that you can watch below. Sandler’s Happy Madison will produce for Columbia Pictures. Jean will direct the film.

“Pixels” became a hit in April with its 1980s video game characters attacking New York City. The trade says the plan “is to make a ‘Ghostbusters’-style action comedy in which characters come out of a video game to wreak havoc in the real world.”
