Pac-Man Pixels Movie

Pac-Man is getting a feature film from Wayfarer Studios and Bandai Namco Entertainment. The popular classic arcade game franchise is getting the live-action treatment that comes from the concept by Lightbeam Entertainment’s Chuck Williams, known for Sonic the Hedgehog. Pac-Man is a yellow circular creature with a large mouth that can run through maze walls and ghosts after eating a blue pellet. The last time we saw Pac-Man on the big screen was in Pixels starring Kevin James and Adam Sandler. The 2015 film was surprisingly good, and fans have been wanting a sequel.
