For Some Reason, They’re Making a Fruit Ninja Movie


You see what you did, Angry Birds? You see what you went and started?


The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Halfbrick Studios, creators of the popular mobile game Fruit Ninja, have announced their team-up with producer Tripp Vinson (producer of such films as Red Dawn, San Andreas, and… ugh, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) to bring their game to the silver screen as a “live-action family comedy”.

Let me repeat that: Fruit Ninja, a game about cutting fruit in mid-air and literally nothing else, as a live-action family comedy. Many questions run through my mind, chief among them being “HOW?” and “WHY?”, although I’d guess the answer to the latter is “because Angry Birds did it”.
