Your favorite time-consuming app is coming to the big screen!!!
Former Disney animation veterans Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis have signed on to co-direct the upcoming feature film version of best-selling video game app Angry Birds.
Rovio Entertainment (creators of Angry Birds) said Reilly and Kaytis will co-direct the 3D CG animated feature. Sony Pictures is handling worldwide marketing and distribution for the film, which has a July 1, 2016 release date. It is almost a forgone conclusion this will be a HUGE hit among parents and children.
“I’m very excited that Fergal and Clay have joined us, bringing with them their vast expertise,” said Rovio CEO Mikael Hed. “They are two of the brightest rising talents in animation, and I’m confident we are building the right team to tell the story of Angry Birds and deliver an amazing movie experience to our fans.”
The film’s screenplay was written by Emmy-winner Jon Vitti. He has written for The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live, The Office, Da Ali G Show, and The Larry Sanders Show, among others. There has been little to no information on the details of the script. Although I’m sure some teasers and leaks will surface mid-late 2014 with a 2016 release.
Until then your app will have to do.
