Star nabs final male lead…

Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Knights Of Badassdom’) has reportedly grabbed a role alongside Adam Sandler (‘The Cobbler’), Josh Gad (‘Frozen’), and Kevin James (‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop’) in the big-budget ‘Ghostbusters’-like action-comedy ‘Pixels.’

Based on the 2010 animated web short by French filmmaker Patrick Jean, ‘Pixels’ follows four champion arcade gamers who are called back into action to save the world when aliens attack by staging versions of popular 1980s-era video games on an epic scale.

Chris Columbus (‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,’ ‘Mrs. Doubtfire,’ ‘Home Alone’) is in the director’s chair helming from a script by Tim Dowling and Tim Herlihy.
