The movie’s narrative will be based upon a story penned by Chuck Williams of Lightbeam Entertainment


Today, games publisher Bandai Namco and film company Wayfarer Studios announced that a Pac-Man film is in production.

Both companies said that they will develop the motion picture together.


The live-action adaptation of the 40-year-old game franchise will also include collaboration with media studio Lightbeam Entertainment.


Lightbeam’s Chuck Williams and Tim Kwok will produce the Pac-Man film. Wayfarer Studios’ Justin Baldoni, Manu Gargi, Andrew Calof, and Tracy Ryerson are set to develop it.


The movie’s narrative will be based upon a story penned by Williams, who previously worked on the Sonic The Hedgehog film.


Pac-Man has seen previous media adaptations over the years. In 1982, the game was produced into a Hanna–Barbera cartoon.


During 2013, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures was a CGI show that aired on Disney XD.


Since it launched in arcades, the franchise has seen releases across multiple consoles over the years. Last year Pac-Man 99 launched for the Nintendo Switch.


A remake of 1999’s Pac-Man World is set to release later this month on multiple platforms.
