    Jon Vitti - The Emmy-winning writing AND producer of The Simpsons and King of The Hill will pen the screenplay for a movie that is to be released in 2016. That movie is based on the popular game - Angry Birds. Voice actors, and etc aren't announced yet, but this movie is to be released on July 1st, 2016. From Sony Pictures Entertainment, this movie will be distributed.

    I am really impressed. I love Angry Birds, Jon Vitti is a good guy, he's creative in production, and I can't wait to see how this movie turns out! But I do wonder how the movie is going to turn out. A game where you are launching birds... In a movie? It's probably an act from the birds in the movie doing some good shit, or something.
    I just realized this should be in the Books, TV, Music, & Movies section. If any mod believes it should be there, please move it there.
    Thank you :)

    ....How? Birds fly into pigs that stole their eggs. Is it just me or is that not a basis for a full length feature film?

    Well, even though the plot, or the story hasn't even been released yet, we shouldn't go judgemental, yet.
    Although I agree with the point, since about the subject. The game, turned into a movie? Yeah, but it's best if we just see what Vitti has for us.

    ...Meh. You could get Francis Ford Coppola to direct it, and I still wouldn't be excited.

    inb4 Angry Birds is for casual scum, ruins the games industry

    To be fair, there's so little to Angry Birds that there's a lot to expand upon. The wacky misadventures of some irritable birds seems like a decent enough basis for a harmless little kids film. I don't exactly care, but eh, the target audience should enjoy it well enough.

    The whole movie would have to be entirely original content, unless it's 3 hours of bird slinging action.

    The industry made a Battleship movie. Fuck it, let them have a swing at Angry Birds.

    You're freaking 8 years old, you ARE a kid.

    As for the movie itself, just..... why? What's worse is that it'll probably top the box office, considering how popular the terrible game is.

    Angry Birds isn't such a bad game, and if they have good writers like that guy, it could turn out to be a pretty good kids movie (which I would see :D)

    Has anyone seen the animated shorts? Here's one.

    A group of evil pigs steals eggs for their king, our heroes have to venture deep into enemy territory to get them back. They could play it off like WW2 commando films, like The Dirty Dozen.

    If that happened I really hope the people that made hogs of war (despite my really disliking the game, also despite that being the best attempt at 3d worms I have yet seen).

    What is so terrible about the game?

    And that movie was horrible, which I am pretty much expecting this one to be as well.

    Just because one can make a movie for Angry Birds, doesn't mean one should. But I am going to predict that the movie will have little to do with the game, be full of cheap pop culture references and worst of all make stupid amount of money for the general population no matter what the quality of the movie is.
