Angry Birds coming to a theater near you

This final note qualifies, I think, for the ‘This Week’s Sign the Apocalypse is Upon Us’ tag.

Picture this: “Angry Birds: The Movie.”

It’s coming soon to a theater near you. Sony Pictures Entertainment and Rovio are gonna team up for a full-length animated 3-D version of the game.

Which does kinda make you think back to Mark Garrison’s story, doesn’t it? About getting Sony to concentrate more on consumer electronics and not so much on movies, hmmm?
