Were you getting bored of all these movies based on 1980s board games and thinking 'I wish they'd make a film out of something less cinematic"? Well someone has heard your dumb prayer.

Deadline is reporting that an emoji movie is already moving forward and has a writer and director.

In a deal near seven figures, Sony Pictures Animation won a three-studio auction for an animated movie pitch centering on the Emoji, those lovable round headed figures that are as much a staple of social media correspondence as adverbs and adjectives. The project will be co-written by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis, with the latter directing the feature.



This move came as a result of a three studio (yes, three studio) bidding war.

Apparently, Leondis shopped the project around because he had finally cracked the code on what would make the most compelling movie out of slightly more fully-formed emoticons.

They just have to be reactions to things right? Or will it animate those faces or that guy with his head down:



Wired had a pretty good explanation for why you don't make an emoji movie:

Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?

No, that is not a joke and nobody is making this up. You can reserve your emoji-only name here. I gotta say, this is making me feel pretty (SMILING PILE OF POOP)(PRAYING HANDS)(SUN WITH SUNGLASSES).

Presumably this weeping kitty monstrosity is in reference to her American Music Awards performance in November (a performance that some have gone so far as to say was a commentary on her own internet infamy.) All we know is that this would probably qualify as an Ugliest Tattoo regardless of the celebrity subject, but boy does that help!
