Is there a ray of hope for the Angry Birds movie?
Maybe, with news that Simpsons writer Jon Vitti will write the script for the upcoming animated feature.
Sony Pictures is distributing the movie and has a July 1, 2016 date penciled in.
Vitti won an Emmy for his work on King of the Hill, was a longtime writer-producer on The Simpsons and worked on The Simpsons Movie.
His other credits include Saturday Night Live, The Larry Sanders Show and The Office, as well as the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie.
