Angry Birds maker Rovio has confirmed that the brand will be hitting the big screen in eye-popping 3D in 2016.

Little is known about the forthcoming film, except that it will be produced by John Cohen, who worked on Despicable Me, and executive produced by David Maisel, formerly of Marvel.

Cohen said in a press release: "From both an entertainment and strategic perspective, Rovio is at the forefront of game innovation and is trailblazing terrific new ways for Angry Birds fans to interact with these characters. I've personally spent countless hours playing the Angry Birds games over the last few years, which I can now happily justify as research for the movie."

It’s not Angry Birds’ first movie involvement. The brand partnered with Fox for the film Rio, releasing an Angry Birds Rio app.
