The Emoji Movie Is Really Happening – Gets Release Date
Sony Pictures Animation has set the release date for “The Emoji Movie” for April 11, 2017. Yup, it’s really happening people.
Still no idea what this could be, but Variety has some details:
Sony won rights in July to the project, based on a pitch by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis about the round-headed figures that have become ubiquitous in social media. The duo are co-writing the script with Leondis directing. The logline is under wraps.
Sony is running out of ideas, but Emojis are all over the place so this might work. They still have a few months to tweak. Emojis are like the Pokemon of the Internet.
