Pac-Man live action movie put into works by Justin Baldoni

Pac-Man's adventures are coming to the big screen.

Actor Justin Baldoni of "Jane the Virgin" wants to bring it to a theatre.

A live-action movie based on the well-known arcade game is being supported by Bandai Namco Entertainment, the Japanese video game studio behind Pac-Man, Ace Combat, Galaga, and Tekken, as well as Baldoni's production company Wayfarer Studios.

In the decades that followed, Pac-Man continued to be released on new consoles and mobile apps in the United States. It was recognized as the "most successful coin-operated game machine" by Guinness World Records in 2005.

Chuck Williams, who served as a producer on Paramount's "Sonic the Hedgehog," a box office success, has experience adapting video games for the big screen and wrote the script for the untitled Pac-Man movie.

However, Pac-Man has only existed as a highlighter-yellow visage on a pixelated screen up until this point. The live-action movie version's specifics, such as the storyline and the character's physical manifestation, are still unknown.
