There’s Going to Be an Emoji Movie; World to Come to an End
So, who's going to win the lead role of Pile of Crap?
OK, kids. It’s over. Time to pack it up and go home.
Sony Pictures Animation won a seven-figure auction, beating out three other studios who apparently want this, for the rights to a pitch for *sigh* an animated emoji movie. Anthony Leondis is set to direct as well as co-write the film with Eric Siegel. We’ve officially run out of screenplay ideas.
Now, for all I know, this could surprise me. After all, I didn’t think that there could be a movie based on a ride, then BOOM – Pirates of the Caribbean. I didn’t think you could make a movie out of a building toy, then BOOM – The LEGO Movie. So, I guess this could work? *sigh*
So, would you go see the emoji movie? But more importantly, who should voice the Poop Emoji?
