He plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones and is set to appear in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past - but for Peter Dinklage the roles keep on coming. It has now been announced that he will star in the big-screen remake of the 2010 short film Pixels.

The two minute movie (available below) sees New York invaded by a series of retro video game characters, including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders.

The project is being made by Adam Sandler's production company and Dinklage will join Sandler on the cast, along with Josh Gad and Kevin James.

The plot will follow a group of gamers who are recruited by the government to fight off the pixelated threat. Filming will start in the summer.

So what do you think? Will this movie set a new high score in terms of incorporating video games in films? Or will it be game over for Sandler and co? Let us know your thoughts below the line.
