Angry Birds

Will we find out what makes the birds so angry? Will all of our burning questions as to why the pigs are taunting the birds and why they all just can't get along? Maybe, as the Angry Birds movie has moved closer to reality with the hiring of a screenwriter. Emmy-winner Jon Vitti - best known for working on The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and The Office - has landed the job. Vitti's film credits include co-writing The Simpsons Movie and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

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

Sony is aiming for a July 1, 2016 theatrical release of the 3D animated comedy.
