Rovio Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing an Angry Birds 3D CGI animated movie in summer 2016. The company made the movie announcement on the third anniversary of the release of the game. Rovio will be working with Despicable Me producer John Cohen. Iron Man executive producer David Maisel was named the executive producer of the Angry Birds movie.
?John?s an exceptionally talented producer, and we?re delighted to have him join the flock. With John?s hands-on producer background and David’s expertise in establishing and running his own successful studio, these two are the dream team for making a movie outside the studio system. Both professionals have the ideal skills and vision to achieve incredible things,? stated Rovio CEO Mikael Hed. Rovio hit revenues of around $97.9 million in 2011 based on the Angry Birds franchise.
