PAC-MAN Movie In The Works

This seemed long overdue.

PAC-MAN FILM IN THE WORKS WITH WAYFARER STUDIOS AND BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT INC.

 

One of the most beloved and influential video game icons of all time set to become major live-action motion picture

 

Wayfarer Studios and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. announce plans to jointly develop and produce a live-action film based on the award-winning and record-setting video game franchise PAC-MAN. A cultural icon for over 40 years, PAC-MAN has been lauded as one of the most influential and longest-running video game franchises in history.

 

The feature film will be based on an original story idea by Chuck Williams (Sonic the Hedgehog, Brother Bear) of Lightbeam Entertainment. Wayfarer Studios recently announced a $125M investment to boost further strategic growth. Justin Baldoni, Manu Gargi, Andrew Calof, and Tracy Ryerson will develop on behalf of Wayfarer Studios. Chuck Williams and Tim Kwok will produce on behalf of Lightbeam.

 

PAC-MAN is an arcade video game originally released in 1980 by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. (previously Namco) which has become synonymous with gaming for generations of players worldwide. Officially introduced in the US in October 1980, it gained popularity far higher than in Japan and became fondly referred to as “PAC-MAN fever”. The massive admiration led to a robust merchandising program with more than 400 items and a TV series with high ratings (56% of share) in the US. In June 2005, Guinness World Records bestowed the honor of “Most Successful Coin-Operated game machine” on PAC-MAN. With new console and mobile games launching every year, its popularity has crossed the globe for more than 40 years.
