Pac-Man is moving to the big screen.

The beloved 80s-era arcade game is in development to be made into a live-action feature, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jane the Virgin alum Justin Baldoni and his production company Wayfarer Studios, also founded by Steve Sarowitz, and Bandai Namco Entertainment, the visionary of other video games including Galaga and Tekken, are spearheading the project, THR says.

While the cast and other details are still under wraps, the untitled project was written by Chuck Williams, who produced Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog, Variety reports.
