    There has been rumblings that video game company Rovio had plans for a movie adaptation of their mobile phone hit Angry Birds since last summer. This week, Rovio got a bit closer to seeing that actually happen with the hiring of David Maisel, who was partly responsible for helping Marvel become its own movie studio.

    Rovio's plan for David Maisel is for him to oversee the formation of an entire entertainment franchise based on the Angry Birds concept, including toys, more games and a franchise of Angry Birds feature films. For those not familiar, the premise of Angry Birds is that some evil pigs have kidnapped the eggs of the birds, and so they are angry, and need to be slingshot at the pigs' structures, freeing the eggs and killing the pigs. So, basically, imagine that as a CGI animated movie, and that's what Rovio wants to bring to your local cineplex.[/p]

    Get your slingshots ready folks.

    ... Again, I shall wait and see before commenting.

    However, I've got to admit, this is getting rather ridiculous. They're making movies out of everything...

    I want a big-budget cgi animation movie (that looks like the title screen of the game) and with a great plot like Tangled.

    Apologies for the lateness of this reply, I was at the funeral for original thought, watching Hollywood hammer in that last nail.

    OTT much? I think it's terrible how Angry birds got so much popularity when almost the same game called 'Crush the Castle' was made ages before. (Crush the Castle was a copy of another game but asked the owner for permission first).

    I'm gonna wait for it and see if it's good or not. [​IMG]

    EDIT: I'm hoping that it'll be a good movie.

    NO, JUST NO
    We could use the money on important things, like world hunger [​IMG]
    Not on a movie about birds with a cause!

    THIS.

    Think about how much it'll cost to animate each bird in this movie, given how expensive and time consuming it is to animate things like fur, feathers and water. Assuming this is a fully CGI film (pretty sure live action would create issues with PETA) then this film will easily cost millions of dollars that could have been used to take a whack at curing a disease, or feeding a third world nation, or putting an end to child labour. No, we've got so much money we can apparantly afford to piss it away on something as deeply pointless as this.

    I totally agree but, if you want to donate the money to charity etc. then why not make the film and give the profits to charity? That way were money will be given.

    movies are for entertainment, entertainment only comes when yer mind empties of important matters. Ever enjoy a movie when u have exams 2 days later and yer mind is thinking about it? no when u start watching the movie, the important things empty out
