We've heard about a movie being adapted from the popular mobile game "Angry Birds" for some time now. The game was a colossal success, still remaining the most popular paid app to date, so it was only a matter of time until a studio tried to capitalize on that. Now, there's been movement and it looks like the film adaptation is officially on the way.
Sony Pictures has acquired the worldwide distribution rights toe the film and now a release date of July 1, 2016 has been set. David Maisel ("Iron Man") and John Cohen ("Despicable Me") are producing the project.
The project marks the first film development for the game developer, Rovio Entertainment. I'm sure they are beyond thrilled at the prospect, since the franchising of the game has spread like wildfire, from stuffed animals to bed sheets.
