Chris Columbus' film "Pixels," which features The Book of Mormon Tony nominee Josh Gad, will be released by Sony Pictures in summer 2015, according to Deadline.com.
The film, which also stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan and Peter Dinklage, will begin principal photography in June.
In "Pixels," according to Deadline, "aliens invade planet Earth after misinterpreting video feeds of classic arcade games as a threat. The President (James) calls on his childhood friend, Jules Brenner (Sandler), a former arcade champ turned home theater installer, to assist in saving the planet."
Monaghan is cast as a weapons expert with Dinklage as Sandler’s former arcade foe and Gad as a "socially inept genius with a lot of conspiracy theories."
Based on the short by Patrick Jean, the motion picture was penned by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling.
