It's Official: The Emoji Movie Is Totally Happening.
Just when you thought making a two-hour movie about minions was a bit of a money grab, wait until you see what Hollywood has next up its sleeves. Sony Pictures Animation just closed a seven-figure deal to produce a movie about... Emojis?!
That's right. There's going to be a fully animated feature film about those smiley faces your grandmother abused when she finally learned how to use her iPhone's texting feature.
According to an article that ran in Time earlier today, the screenplay is going to be penned by Eric Siegel (MTV's 'The Hard Times f RJ Berger') and Anthony Leondis (Disney's 'Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch'), the latter of which will be directing as well.
But what I want to know is: HOW?!

Well, people HAVE been using Emojis in filmmaking on some level. I mean, check out this fan-made Emoji music video for Beyonce & Jay-Z's "Drunk In Love".
While the Emoji movie is still in its early preproduction stage, I've got to know: Do any of you think people will actually want to watch this? Or do you think it'll turn out to be a giant lump of
(Sorry. I had to.)

Haha man, too good. I wonder about the movie though. Like are all the characters emojis or do they just change their emoji depending on their feels? I have so many questions!
@nicolejb I know, I feel like when they finally go to screenwrite this, there's going to have to be a lot of organization as far as that's concerned. There's a lot of emojis!!
this film is perfect for those who can't actually act but have a nice body. I guess the emojis will do everything for you :/ lol
