Peter Dinklage Joins New Adam Sandler Movie Pixels
Chris Columbus set to direct 80's game inspired romp...

Peter Dinklage is doing pretty well for himself these days, isn't he? Not only has he got a starring turn on HBO's blockbuster series Game of Thrones, but he's also been lining himself up numerous roles for his downtime, including X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, and now it looks like he's snared himself a gig alongside Kevin James and Adam Sandler in the video game inspired movie Pixels.

The movie is based on a fantastic short from Patrick Jean (which you can view below), and he'll serve as an executive producer on the full project, which looks set to be helmed by director Chris Columbus.

The movie certainly has an intriging pitch, as Kevin James' President of the United States (well, we didn't say it was going to be realistic) must fight back against an invasion of 80s video game characters, and calls upon some high school friends (Dinklage, Sandler and Josh Gad)well versed in the arts of pixel destruction to help clean the mess up.

The odds are already stacked against this one in our opinion, but if Columbus can pull it off, it could well turn out to be a wonderful bit of fan service. It's one heck of an ask though...
