Sony Is Going to Make an Animated Movie About Emoji

Great idea!

According to Deadline, Sony Pictures Animation is the proud new owner of a hypothetical movie about emoji from director Anthony Leondis, which reportedly drew strong interest from a variety of Hollywood studios thanks to the lack of intellectual property protections on the little yellow symbols. (The similarity of emoji to Minions probably couldn’t hurt, either.) We would ask how it would be possible to make a movie about emoji, but we said the same thing about Legos and look where we are now.
