    Default 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 Davidīs 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.

    Ah yes, 2016. Long enough for the fad to officially die out.

    Well, I guess that means there's still hope for a POGS movie.

So my theory is that when the devil wants to get something out of you, he doesn't lie at all. He tells you the exact, literal truth. And he lets you find your own way to hell." Mr. Easterman

    It would be interesting if they could show all of the game variations, including the Star Wars Angry Birds.

    2016 is ridiculous, though. They should be able to make something by 2014 - just use those fast & cheap Brazilians that Igle was talking about.

    I like Angry Birds, but in 2016 does anyone still care?
