adam sandlerAdam Sandler has lined up his next project -- and he may be reuniting with some familiar faces.

The Wrap reports that the star is headlining "Pixels," a big-budget adaptation of Patrick Jean's short film about '80s video game characters attacking New York City. Kevin James (a frequent Sandler collaborator) and Josh Gad are in talks to join Sandler in the "Ghostbuster"-like action-comedy.

Sony is also hoping to sign on Jennifer Aniston as the female lead to re-team the "Just Go With It" duo. But Aniston's plate is very full and scheduling conflicts may prevent her from facing off with Sandler again.

Chris Columbus is set to direct the big-screen version of the viral video, which featured characters like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Frogger wreaking havoc on the streets of New York.

Let's see if Sandler can get top score.
