The Angry Birds movie already has some respected talent backing it, including Despicable Me producer John Cohen and Iron Man producer and former Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel, and now it has added Emmy Award-winning comedy writer Jon Vitti.

Most fans will know Jon Vitti for penning the early episodes of The Simpsons, as well as The Simpsons Movie. He also wrote for The Larry Sanders Show and King of the Hill.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars executive producer Catherine Winder was also hired to produce the film as well.

Angry Birds: The Movie will be landing in theaters three years from now in 2016.

They might not be that good, but it was about some people. And people do stuff, they talk.

Angry birds has mute round pigs and birds flying off a catapult, and that's it.

That's the game, the movie is probably going to have a story and the birds will most likely talk.

So actually they just want to do an animation film, but for obvious financial profits they chose to make an "angry birds movie".

And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

They can make Hitler&Stalin romantic comedy for all I care, as long as it's funny :).
