Columbia Pictures has finalized plans to bring those Angry Birds to the big screen. The studio announced that it has tapped directors Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly to helm the project and given it a release date of July 1, 2016.
Angry Birds was one of the first truly blockbuster mobile games that exploded with the birth of smart phones in 2009. They’ve become a pop culture mainstay and even have themselves drifted into movie territory with games inspired by icons such as Star Wars and animated movies, such as Rio.
No word on casting yet for the voices of the Angry Birds, but stay tuned!
