It appears that a live-action movie adaptation of the Pac-Man video game franchise is officially in development. Whether, exactly, a live-action version of the classic arcade video game might even sound unclear, but it certainly appears to be what Bandai Namco Entertainment is doing.

Pac-Man, if you’re not familiar with the franchise, usually follows the yellow character of the same name as he moves around a maze, chasing and chasing ghosts of different colors. According to Hollywood Reporter, Bandai Namco Entertainment and Wayfarer Studios are exclusively behind the project. Wayfarer Studios, founded by Justin Baldoni and Steve Sarowitz, is perhaps best known for producing the original film. cloudsBased on the life and music of Zach Sobiech for Disney+.

Additionally, the live-action adaptation of Pac-Man will reportedly be based on an original idea by Chuck Williams of Lightbeam Entertainment (Sonic the Hedgehog) Mann Gargi and Andrew Caloff will produce the project with Baldoni for Wayfarer Studios while Williams and Tim Kwok are doing so for Lightbeam Entertainment.

Whatever this turns out to be, it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Pac-Man has been featured in a movie. Notably, Pac-Man was featured prominently in the 2015 live-action film pixels Also in the 2012 Disney animated film wreck it Ralph, They both had Pac-Man outside their stereotypical context, but still in line with who the character is and what he does. Exactly what a new live-action adaptation focusing on Pac-Man, in particular, can do with the character remains to be seen.
