The Angry Birds movie will be written by Jon Vetti, veteran scribe of several episodes of The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Da Ali G Show, Rovio has announced.
The long discussed Angry Birds movie has officially fallen into the hands of Sony Pictures Entertainment, where the game's developer Rovio announced it's set to come out 1st July 2016. That's a Friday, so clear your calenders now.
Angry Birds developer Rovio Entertainment has officially announced that it's making a feature film based on the popular mobile game.
Due in summer of 2016, the CG-animated movie is being produced by John Cohen, who recently produced Despicable Me. Former chairman of Marvel Studios and executive producer of Iron Man, David Maisel, will act as executive producer of the film.
Rovio will retain full creative control over the project by producing and financing the movie "outside the studio system," whatever that means.
Angry Birds developer Rovio along with actual rocket scientists NASA have combined forces to bring a Mars-themed update to our cosmic flying fowl.

Angry Birds Space, the latest in the phenomenally popular franchise, has seen incredible early success.
UPDATE: Rovio has backtracked on its previous statement, saying it is in fact working on a Windows Phone port of Angry Birds Space.
If familiarity breeds contempt, then Rovio's avian-flinging physics puzzler must be one of the most reviled games around. Downloaded millions of times, the series has entranced normal people the world over, yet been greeted mostly with disdain by gamers.
For the game's critics, its sins are many: gameplay that seems to favour blind luck, a scoring system that is almost impossible to decipher and a heavy reliance on DLC, turning out 10 updates for Angry Birds Seasons in just under 18 months, have all tapped into core player fears regarding the shallow, craven nature of mobile gaming. More than anything, it's the suspicion that having hit on a winning formula, Rovio is content to churn out more of the same, doing little to grow the game beneath.
So it comes as something of a surprise that Angry Birds Space is downright ambitious. It's certainly the first game bearing those green porcine faces and bulbous birds to feel like an actual sequel, an evolution rather than a quick palette swap.
Angry Birds developer Rovio plans to deploy themed sets of swings and slides to playgrounds around the country.

Angry Birds studio Rovio was in such a precarious financial position while developing its planet-smashing smartphone phenomenon that its owner's grandparents remortgaged their flat to help get the game finished.
Seemingly unsatisfied with conquering the earthly realm, Angry Birds developer Rovio has set its sights on the heavens with the next game in its ubiquitous smartphone smash.
The Finnish developer today announced that Angry Birds Space takes off from March 22nd. No specific platforms were mentioned, though VentureBeat reports that we can expect "simultaneous launches in mobile gaming, animation, retail, and publishing."
Indeed, it seems this will be quite the undertaking for Rovio, with the developer insisting it will be "the biggest game launch since the original Angry Birds."
