Adam Sandler may make a 'Pixels' movie
The Juice* is always railing against remakes, so we shouldn't get too bent out of shape when we hear that Adam Sandler's production company is thinking about adapting an original property. That is, unless the idea is really kinda stupid.
Happy Madison and Columbia Pictures are in talks to make a full-length version of viral video Pixels, a short film by a guy named Patrick Jean, showing various old-gen video game graphics coming to life and invading midtown Manhattan. Sandler's company now owns the rights to the story. According to Deadline.com, "the idea would be to do it in 3D."
Um, we don't want to be the fly in the ointment, but the original (watch it above) was less than three minutes long and involved giant Lego bricks blowing up taxicabs, not exactly the formula for great art. Besides, it can't be in 3D; everyone knows those graphics were only 2D. Sheesh, some people, huh?
