Mashable reports that the game Angry Birds is going to be turned into an animated series.
Now those birds will really have something to be angry about: Having their good reputation ruined by a lazy Hollywood money grab.
How much backstory do we really want here? I don't need to learn that the reason the pigs stole the eggs was because the birds cut off funding to the pigs food stamps program and the pigs needed the eggs to feed their starving children or something. I don't want to turn my subway ride diversion into some big moral dilemma.
And can a feature film be far behind?
I wonder if Bob Hoskins is available? He always seems down to turn a popular video game into a terrible movie.
Actually, new question: I wonder if Bob Hoskins is alive?
