‘Angry Birds’ Will Crash Into Cinemas in 2016; ‘Despicable Me’ Producer Signs On

From Slashfilm:

It’s hard to believe it’s only been three years since Rovio Entertainment launched a little mobile game called Angry Birds. In that time, the franchise has become totally ubiquitous. I’m not just talking about the countless special editions of the game itself, either. I can’t walk into a drugstore without seeing Angry Birds-branded candy and plush toys for sale, and Angry Birds t-shirts are a common sight on the subway or the sidewalk.

Now, the cute but vicious creatures are pushing into new territory with a planned movie. Rovio has announced that a 3D CG-animated feature adaptation will hit in 2016, with John Cohen (Despicable Me) producing. David Maisel (formerly of Marvel Studios) remains on board as executive producer. (Angry Birds, Cinema)
