As we mentioned in yesterday’s report from the set of PopStar: Never Stop Never Stopping, there are roughly a cajillion celebrity cameos in the concert mockumentary from Lonely Island’s masterminds Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer.
We’ve learned a little more about the anticipated ‘Angry Birds’ film that hits cinemas next year, and - get this - it’ll be an origin story (of sorts). According to Empire, the film’s producer, John Cohen, says the animated movie will show us what the birds were like before they became, ahem, angry. “This movie is going to be the origin story of how that conflict came to exist.” It’s great to see the production actually giving audiences what they want - an explanation of how they came to be a collective of hotheaded, feathered miscreants, so will appease fans when it makes its way to cinemas in around eight months time. The film stars a number of high profile actors that are lending their vocal talents to the production, including: Jason Sudeikis, Peter Dinklage, Bill Hader, Keegan-Michael Key, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, and Maya Rudolph.
