Angry Birds Movie Set For Summer 2016

Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool

This was always inevitable. Only two days ago I was wondering when we would get an official announcement. It seems I didn’t have to wait long at all.

John Cohen, of Despicable Me success, has been hired as the producer on the upcoming Angry Birds movie, which will hit cinemas during the summer of 2016. Former Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel is also on board as executive producer.

Speaking of Marvel Studios, the film is going to be produced and financed by Rovio Entertainment. Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio Entertainment, said via the press release:

With John’s hands-on producer background and David´s expertise in establishing and running his own successful studio, these two are the dream team for making a movie outside the studio system. Both professionals have the ideal skills and vision to achieve incredible things.

So there you have it, Rovio Entertainment are now a movie production company.

Hed doesn’t exactly let on what these ‘incredible things’ are and if they will include anything outside of the Angry Birds franchise. But something tells me that I might be waiting a little while for an Amazing Alex movie.
