Angry Birds: the movie

Super Mario Bros. Mortal Kombat. Street Fighter. Resident Evil. Tomb Raider. And now... Angry Birds.

Yes, the history of dodgy video-game film adaptations is almost as long as the history of video games itself. But this might take the biscuit. The multi-million-selling Angry Birds has proven that smartphones are a serious gaming platform, and the head of developer Rovio says that versions for grown-up consoles are in the works, as well as a sequel.

But that's not all. Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka says the game is going to become 'some sort of film or TV show.' OK, thinking about it, an animated TV series - a short one - is probably more likely than a feature film. But, well, they said that about Pokemon, didn't they?
