Angry Birds movie is in the works; Rovio taps John Cohen to produce

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

There've been murmurings for a while of an Angry Birds movie coming into existence, but for the longest time it was merely something that was off in the far distance, something Rovio would most likely get to eventually.

Well, eventually is now, as Rovio has announced that the 3D computer-animated feature film version of their popular franchise how has a producer in the form of John Cohen, producer for such animated hits as Despicable Me, Ice Age, and Alvin and the Chipmunks (okay, that one's a bit of a cheat considering it's only semi-animated, but it was successful nonetheless).

In addition to picking up Cohen for the role of producer, Rovio has picked up David Maisel, former head of Marvel Studios (the Avengers films), to serve as executive producer. Following the example Maisel architected for Marvel, Rovio will produce the movie outside the studio system, allowing them to maintain full creative control and create “innovative entertainment at the highest level of quality”.

To top it all off, the movie even has a release window. According to Rovio, we can expect the high flying antics of the Angry Birds to hit the big screen sometime in the summer of 2016.

In the meantime, we can only imagine how they will turn a game about popping pigs and breaking stuff into an entertaining, narrative-driven, 90-or-so-minute-long movie. Hopefully it won't look like this...
