After 250 million downloads, Rovio plans to release an “Angry Birds” movie. The corporation recently raised $42 million and purchased an animation studio in Finland, where they plan to make the film in-house.
Rovio is an entertainment media company in Finland and creator of the phenomenon “Angry Birds.”
The game is the second top paid app in Apple’s store and only 99-cents. The game has become so popular that it has released merchandise of all sorts—flip flops, lunch boxes, t-shirts, phone cases, stuffed animals, key chains, back packs, Halloween costumes—you name it! The game was also incorporated with this year’s animated movie, “Rio.” And now, the “Angry Birds” have gained enough flight to take off to the big screen!
David Maisel is suspected to be the executive producer of the future film, and the crew is working hard to make a successful, entertaining movie based on the game.
The movie won’t be complete for another three or four years; Rovio really wants to perfect this and make it a hit film, so all of us angry birds will just have to remain patient until then!
