Brian Cox signed up for Pixels

Brian Cox has joined big-budget adventure movie Pixels.

The Scottish actor, 68, will star alongside Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage and Kevin James, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Pixels centres around an ageing video game champion (Adam), who is asked to defend the world against an alien invasion.

Brian, whose credits include Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, Braveheart and The Bourne Supremacy, will play a character called Admiral Porter.

Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan also star in the film, to be directed by Harry Potter filmmaker Chris Columbus.

The film, written by Tim Herlihy and Tim Dowling, is based on a 2010 internet short by Patrick Jean.

The film is expected to open in May next year.
