Sony Animation Has A Motherf*cking Emoji Movie In Development and Can Suck It

Look, I like an emoji as much as the next person. Sometimes only a tiny, smiling turd followed by fire and a knife can properly convey my feelings while texting friends. That said, emojis should not get a movie of their very own. I mean, what the fuck?

Eric Siegel (1 episode of Men at Work) is writing the script and Anthony Leondis (Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters, Igor) is going to direct the tiny static pictures in an animated feature for Sony.

And? AND? There was a bidding war involving Warner Bros. and Paramount that Sony Animation won to MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT GODDAMNED EMOJIS. Word on the street is that, since emojis are public domain, other studios will likely be developing their own emoji flicks.

What in the ever-loving shit basket will be next? I can’t wait for that gif movie, where every scene is a two loop rotation of drag queens being sassy. Maybe after that we can get a meme movie that’s just a constant rotation of the different iterations of popular memes. Then we can have Comment Thread: The Movie! OH HOLY SHIT, THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN ACTUAL INTERESTING THINGS BEING IN MOVIES. YAY.
