The new Angry Birds' movie will premiere in 2016

The Angry Birds are coming to the big screen

The video game Angry Birds will jump off smartphones and onto the big screen with an animated 3-D movie to be released in 2016, Sony Pictures Entertainment has announced.
The film, a venture with game-maker Rovio, will follow the move into television — with Angry Birds Toons, an animated series that had its premiere in March.

There are more than three years until Rovio's Angry Birds movie hits cinemas, but the mobile games developer-cum-filmmaker crowned Sony as the distributor of its forthcoming film, while Despicable Me producer John Cohen is also on board.

The company now names comedy writer Jon Vitti as the man in charge of screenplay duties. He'll be well placed in the role, having experience scribbling for The Simpsons TV show and movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks, King of the Hill, The Office, and Da Ali G Show.

Meanwhile, Catherine Winder joins as a producer, utilising her knowledge from working with Rainmaker Entertainment, Lucasfilm Animation, Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios to oversee production of Ice Age.

Mikael Hed, CEO, Rovio, said: "I’m very excited that Jon and Catherine have joined us, bringing with them their vast expertise. I’m confident we are building the right team to deliver an amazing movie experience to our fans."

The movie will be available in cinemas on July 1st, 2016 and many details will be revealed with the passage of time.
