Josh Gad and Kevin James are set for “Pixels”, says Deadline.

This is the Adam Sandler-produced comedy from “Harry Potter” director Chris Columbus, which tells of a aliens using the ideas from ’80s video games to take down the world.

Based on a short film by Patrick Jean, the movie was written by Tim Herlihy and Tim Dowling, and is due to begin shooting in the Summer.

The film’s nifty plot?

When aliens attack by staging versions of ’80s video games on an epic scale, four champion arcade gamers are called back into action to save the world.

No doubt Rob Schneider will pop up at the end of the film with a “You can do it!”
