Sony Pictures has set a May 17, 2013 release date for Pixels, Patrick Jean's adaptation of his own web short that you can watch below.
"Pixels" became a viral hit with its 1980s video game characters attacking New York City. It was previously said that the plan was to make a 'Ghostbusters'-style action comedy in which characters come out of a video game to wreak havoc in the real world.
Adam Sandler's production company Happy Madison is behind the big screen adaptation.
The May 17, 2013 date was previously held by Roland Emmerich's Singularity, but it has being going through a rewrite and has now been scheduled for November 1, 2013.
