According to a report from The Next Web, Rovio has now selected a producer for the upcoming Angry Birds movie – and it just happens to be the man behind the excellent Iron Man 2!
We previously reported that Rovio was apparently planning to film an Angry Birds Movie (and have acquired a Finnish animation studio in order to produce the animation) – As their Angry Birds franchise continues to grow tremendously, they have begun significantly expanding their offerings – plush toys, and custom merchandise, for instance, have recently gone up for pre-order on their website.
What really makes me curious is whether or not there will still be a market for Angry Birds when the film is released 2-3 years from now. Sure, Angry Birds is currently extremely popular, but can any game – especially such a simple one – really keep a hold on its customers for that long?
