Can’t decide between going to a movie or playing Angry Birds? Well, relax cowboy: the game by Rovio will have an animated (obviously) film adaptation. No word yet on whether there will be a Angry Birds Rio movie, which would make it the first movie based on a game based on a movie. On another animation note, Spy vs. Spy gets the royal treatment with Ron Howard to direct. A remake of War Games is also in the works. And the Nicholas Sparks story The Best of Me, about a guy and girl who used to be in love, and then they weren’t, but then it’ll all work out in the end to ultimately make women cry (well, that’ll probably be the gist, anyway).
Other script sales include:
– Swear to God starring everyone’s favorite slightly-furry comedian Will Ferrell, who plays a hedge fund manager that sees God.
– Diablo Cody will make her directorial debut with her script Lamb of God, a delightful name for a Las Vegas comedy.
– Someone got one of our letters: “Make more Ed Helms movies.” The budding star is attached to play the lead in True North.
– Magic Kingdom, set at the Disneyland park, with Jon Favreau to direct. Apparently the plot is being kept just as secret as Club 33.5. . . .
