Adam Sandler is currently looking to star in Pixels, a movie based on a short film released in 2010 (posted above) about video game villains come to life. ‘Make it stop, this is my worst nightmare,’ I hear you say. But what if it was Directed by Seth Gordon, the man behind King of Kong? Would that make you feel better?
Pixels is being handled by Happy Madison, the production company run by Adam Sandler — which doesn’t bode well for the movie — but hiring someone like Gordon to Direct seems like a step in the right direction. Apparently the team is looking to replicate a Ghostbusters vibe, which also sounds promising.
Time will tell of course. I don’t necessarily dislike Adam Sandler — I actually enjoy plenty of his movies — but he’s definitely made some duds. With the right director this movie could end up being pretty awesome.
