Sony Pictures and Rovio are moving forward with the Angry Birds movie, and have revealed who will be starring in the 3D animated film based on the game of the same name.
Directed by Feral Reilly and Clay Kaytis, Angry Birds stars Jason Sudeikis (We’re the Millers) as Red, Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, Destiny) as Mighty Eagle, Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) as Matilda, and Josh Gad (Frozen) as Chuck.
