After a bidding war between three (3!!) studios, Sony Pictures emerged triumphant, winning a seven (7!!) figure auction for the rights to make a movie based on everyone’s favorite alternate keyboard, the Emoji.
Seeing as Sony has literally JUST acquired the rights, nothing really at all is known about the movie except it’s writers, Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis (of Lilo & Stitch and Kung Fu Panda), with Leondis directing.
It could be a couple years before any details are released…but man, is my mind spinning with the epic cast this could have
Not gonna lie, lots of thoughts passed through my head when I saw this story…
First, I was like; ‘What :?’ ?? Are these people serious, like, huh??
Plus, a freaking bidding war too!! 😯 #holycrapitoli
But then I had an 💡 ! I remembered the ‘Mr. Men and Little Miss‘ cartoon from when I was a kid 😛 and how much I ❤ ‘d that show and the books. How cool would it be if that’s kind of how they’re going to do it? Except a 2k reboot to it like a cross between that and South Park…too 😎
So, now needless to say…I am super excited 😀
I wonder who’s going to play the smiling poo emoji ❓
