Film based on smartphone game about an idol-stealing explorer set to follow Angry Birds movie into production

Angry Birds film takes off

Frozen: watch the trailer for Disney's new animated film

Indiana Jones-style smartphone game Temple Run looks set to be the latest example of the form to make its way to the big screen, after Hollywood studio Warner Bros entered negotiations for a film version overseen by Harry Potter producer David Heyman.

The hugely popular Imangi Studios title looks rather more ripe for celluloid conversion than the upcoming Angry Birds. It centres on an explorer who is chased by demonic monkeys after stealing an idol from a temple. The film adaptation would follow much the same plot, though the demonic chasing entities are now described simply as "forces".

It's not the first time Temple Run has teamed up with Hollywood. Developers also released tie-in versions with Disney films »
