While director Chan-wook Park's first foray into English-language filmmaking is met with indifference (looking at you, Stoker!), his Korean movies are being remade for the English speaking audience. The latest of which is his 2002 thriller Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance.
Produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian, the movie does not have a director attached but the script is written by Broken City's Brian Tucker.
Columbia Pictures has announced that Joe Vitti (The Simpsons, King of the Hill) will write the screenplay for the animated 3D film Angry Birds, based on the popular video game.
The Angry Birds video game launched in 2009 as a mobile game and has expanded into all kinds of merchandise since (clothes, bags, stuffed animals). The game remains the number one paid app of all time.
Angry Birds already exists as a cartoon called Angry Birds Toons. Watch a promotional video for the cartoon below.
Vitti previously wrote The Simpsons Movie (2007) which received mostly favorable reviews. His experience in animated series’ such as The Simpsons and King of the Hill could make this Angry Birds movie entertaining if given the right cast.
Will this be any good?
