by Categorized: games Date:

MIO5X220_7048_9Sony Pictures has made a deal to produce a movie based on the game ‘Angry Birds.’

“Every studio in town would love to add Angry Birds to their slate,” Sony co-chairmen Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal said in a statement. “There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table. We’re thrilled to be distributing this film and we hope this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship with Rovio as we look for ways to work on future projects together.”

Sony Animation produced the Smurfs movie, ‘Hotel Transylvania,’ and “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs,’ all of which have had sequels released or in the works.

Do you think the name recognition will last for the next 3 years?
