The Angry Birds movie officially announced

Coming to theaters in summer of 2016.

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.

This announcement coincides with Angry Bird's three year anniversary. In that time it has been downloaded over one billion times across multiple platforms.

No mention has been made over who might star in the film, but here's hoping Gary Busey is available.

Happy third birthday, Angry Birds.
