Michelle Monaghan was just cast to star in Adam Sandler’s upcoming comedy Pixels. The movie is about aliens misinterpreting video feeds of old arcade games as a declaration of war. In order to stop the threat, the world must turn to the expertise of a bunch of arcade game experts.
Sandler will play a former arcade game champion who is currently living an unfulfilling life installing home theater equipment. Monaghan will play a weapons expert working with the United States government. Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage will play Sandler’s former arcade game rival.
Will the unsuccessful but charming nerd score the beautiful and ambitious woman? Will America lead the way in saving the world from alien invaders? Will Dinklage be hilarious? Probably. But you’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to be sure.
