"Angry Birds" Movie is Moving Forward

Posted: July 1st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Angry Birds" Movie is Moving ForwardSubmit Comment
A few months ago there were talks of a movie based on the popular "Angry Birds" game. But now, it's become reality with news that Rovio (company behind the game) has hired former Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel as an adviser.

Maisel was instrumental in securing $525 million for Marvel to finance its own slate of pics, starting with "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk." He also facilitated talks that resulted in Marvel's $4 billion sale to Disney.

Rovio sees itself as the next Pixar, but is currently focused on developing an "Angry Birds" movie. Then use that momentum to produce a slate of other films.

"There has been so much chatter about an 'Angry Birds' movie, but it's now real," said Maisel, who has already begun conversations with screenwriters and directors. "The process is starting now."

"The next Pixar"?

Yeah, I can totally see that. Besides, I thought they already made an live-action movie.

Freudian- Beautiful haha, it can't be Michael Bay though I only saw one small explosion.

Angry Birds would only work as a cartoon mini series, no longer than 10 minutes per episode.

Great news, I love the game.

I hope they make it a animation movie not like the live action Super Mario Bros movie.
That was awful.

Nawtnt- I noticed you enjoy the word "great". Let me give you few replacement words just to spice it up a bit: "good" "cool" "awesome" "sweet" "adequate" "the bees knees" "the mutts nuts" "the chicks d*cks" "the frocks c*cks" and so on... good luck champ!

"Rovio sees itself as the next Pixar,"

lol! The people that started Pixar were, are, computer scientists and programmers and pioneering CG artists and Siggraph contributers like Catmull. You can't go out, hire some 'tween Max users and buy up a server rack and think you can put Pixar out of the way. They're entrenches and established. You're nothing. And your first film is going to be sh*t because it's based off of a stupid game most people play on their iPhone. Idiots.
