Wait! Whatc Sony Has Greenlit an Emoji Moviec

22 July 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sony Pictures Animation must certainly be enjoying how people are taking in the Pac-Man-heavy marketing for this weeks' Pixels (and, to the film's mild credit, he is the best part of it), because the suits in charge have ponied up the near seven figures to have some other yellow-faced friends transition to the big screen. In a heated three-studio audition, Sony won the right to have their banner placed in front of an Emoji movie. With Warner Bros and Paramount reported to be the other two studios vying to get the expressive, social media/text message-based personalities their cinematic due, it's apparently a ripe opportunity to take this property (c) to the next level, as the Japan-hatched ideograms don't subside themselves to any pesky rights, making them essentially free-reign when it comes to marketing, promoting and all that jazz. Does it matter that they'll have to take the extra route »

Kung Fu Panda Director Making Emoji Movie

22 July 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Sony Pictures Animation won an auction between three studios for an animated movie pitch centering on the Emoji, which are icons often used in social media to express emotions and objects. The project will be co-written by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis. It will be directed by Leondis (Igor, Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters), who initially pitched the project to studios (Sony, Warner Bros, Paramount), with storyboards highlighting details of the story. The attractive thing about an "Emoji" movie is that there are no rights to purchase. Because of that, there is already another similar project being shopped around. »

An Emoji Movie? Really!!??

22 July 2015 2:45 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Proving that Hollywood thinks anything is a good idea (even when it is absolutely terrible), Emoji’s are headed to the big screen. Yes, those cute winky faces that you send to your friends are getting their own movie. And whats more, Deadline is reporting there was even a heated bidding war between Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., and Paramount over Eric Siegel (Men at Work) and Anthony Leondis' (Igor, and slated to direct this project) pitch for an Emoji centric movie, which Sony won with a reported seven figure pay out.  So apparently, this license is something people actually want to make, but will anybody actually want to see it? Sure, The Lego Movie proved there is a market to make something genuinely compelling out of the most unlikely of sources, as evidenced by the the upcoming Pixels, but it’s a big jump from iconic characters from multiple »

There's an Emoji movie on the way

21 July 2015 11:11 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

You read that right: Emoji The Movie is in the works at Sony Pictures Animation...

And you thought some of the remake stories we've been running have been odd.

Still, we suppose it was inevitable, really. The rise of the Emoji - those little pictures designed to get across messages that used to be conveyed by things such as words - has been quick and brutal. The Emoji first came to prominence in Japan in the late 1990s, and we now learn that there's going to be an Emoji movie.

The film has come about courtesy of a pitch from Eric Siegel (the TV show Men At Work) and Anthony Leondis (who made Igor, and DreamWorks' unreleased B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations). Leondis reportedly storyboarded the film in detail, leading to a bidding war breaking out between Sony Pictures animation, Warner Bros and Paramount.

Sony has won the battle for the film, »

'Fantastic Four', 'Victor Frankenstein' and 'Adderall Diaries' in Today's MPAA Ratings

21 July 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I learned something with today's ratings bulletin beyond the actual ratings for a trio of upcoming films. I learned Amber Heard and Johnny Depp got married, and not necessarily all that recently... back in February. On top of that, she is apparently going by Amber Heard Depp now, or at least that's how IMDb is referring to her. Yeah, pretty exciting stuff. I found this out because Heard stars in Pamela Romanowsky's upcoming film The Adderall Diaries (as Amber Heard) alongside a large list of names including James Franco, Christian Slater, Wilmer Valderrama, Ed Harris, Jim Parrack, Cynthia Nixon and Timothee Chalamet. The pic played the Tribeca Film Festival and will be released by A24 later this year, but no official date has yet been set. Next we have a PG-13 rating for a couple of upcoming 20th Century Fox features, first off there's Fantastic Four and its "sci-fi »

Emoji Animated Movie Happening at Sony

21 July 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures Animation has emerged victorious in a bidding war for a project based on the social media icons known as Emoji. Warner Bros. and Paramount were also vying for the project, but Deadline reports that Sony Pictures Animation was much more aggressive in their pursuit of the animated movie. Anthony Leondis (B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is attached to direct and he is co-writing the screenplay with Eric Siegel.

What makes this project unique is there are no underlying rights to purchase, because the Emoji icons are in public domain. There is reportedly another pitch that will be shopped to the studios soon centering on Emoji, but it isn't clear who is behind that project quite yet. No details were given about how the story will be brought to life, but director Anthony Leondis pitched the studios using storyboards that explained how the movie would play out.

Ready For An Emoji Film?

21 July 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

How you react to news that Sony – already in production on one film based on a modern tech trend with Angry Birds – is planning one based around Emoji might depend on your age and your ‘net-savviness. So prepare to consider this Omg awesomesauce or another sign of the end times…According to Deadline, Sony Pictures Animation won a bidding war for a pitch by director Anthony Leondis, who travelled between the studios with a batch of storyboards showing how the basic plot will play out. Sony nabbed the project and Eric Siegel is aboard to turn the idea into a script for an animated adventure.Quite what that will be remains to be seen: at least in the case of something like Lego or the Angry Birds, you had narrative plans, characters and worlds built up. Emoji, the Japan-spawned graphical representations of faces, pets, objects and, yes, poop, wouldn’t »
