Angry Birds movie confirmed

Touchscreen game flying to the big screen

Ex-Chairman of Marvel Studios David Maisel has confirmed the Angry Birds movie is actually happening.

He said, “There has been so much chatter about an Angry Birds movie, but it’s now real, the process is starting now.”

The Iron Man producer has teamed up with games company Rovio in order to bring this slightly odd project to life.

CEO Mikael Hed seems very pleased with their partnership, even going as far as to compare Maisel to another slightly more famous movie mogul.

“[They are] two people I know have gone outside the studio system and built a very significant entertainment business that managed to break through on the movie side.

"Since that’s our aspiration as well – and George Lucas was unavailable – David was really the best person we could have hoped to work with.”

Despite being compared to the man behind Attack Of The Clones, Maisel is clearly very excited about the project.

“People are interacting with these characters six inches from them each time they play, and that creates an emotional connection…It’s a global thing that’s something I’ve never seen before. It will be exciting to expand [Angry Birds] within Hollywood.”

Will the Angry Birds movie be eggscellent, or will it explode on impact? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think...
