Angry Birds gameAfter selling almost seven million downloads and currently standing as the number one iPhone app game in over 60 countries, Angry Birds is set to get the respect it deserves and become a movie.

The game itself couldn't be simpler as players use a slingshot to help a flock of animated birds destroy a group of evil pigs who stole their eggs. To be honest, it sounds rubbish but anyone who has the game will admit to hours of their lives being wasted playing it.

Rovio, the Finnish creator of the hit iPhone and iPad game, have already been meeting with studios and talent agencies to turn their property into a big screen animated movie or TV show. Apparently, the goal is to create a look that resembles the claymation features for which Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animation have become known.
