Were you waiting on pins and needles for more "Angry Birds" updates? Me neither, but they are coming for you regardless. A writer has been hired to pen the script, making the film look like it's actually going to happen. And it's a respectable choice, at that.

Emmy-Award winning Jon Vitti, known for such gems as "The Office" and "The Simpsons", has been hired to write the game-adapted film script. John Cohen ("Despicable Me"), Marvel executive David Maisel, and Catherine Winder are producing the project, so despite the silly subject matter, the film is definitely not lacking talent.

A release date has been set for July 1, 2016, so they are certainly not wasting any time to get the project moving along. It will be interesting to see how a proven talent like Vitti, can make the premise of birds knocking things over an engaging subject matter. Clearly it will make money and will make many kids happy, or Sony wouldn't be bringing out the big guns.

Are you looking forward to an "Angry Birds" movie? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Angry Birds" will hit AMC Theatres on July 1, 2016.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
