You know those tiny yellow faces in your smartphone keyboard? There are hundreds of them! Do you ever look at them and think, "Boy, these would make a great movie"?
Some Hollywood executives did and now it's official: Emojis are poised for world domination. Not only have those cute little smiley faces taken over press releases and your passwords, Sony has announced there will in fact be an emoji movie.
Earlier this week, Sony Animation Pictures announced it won an auction for the movie rights against movie giants Warner Brothers and Paramount. Anthony Leondis is set to write and direct the movie, with co-writer Eric Siegel on board as well.
Leondis has directed kids movies like "Igor" and "Kung Fu Panda." Siegel meanwhile has most recently been working as a producer on TBS' "Men at Work."
So what could the emoji movie possibly be about? It's all up for speculation, but I think Jimmy Kimmel and actress Brie Larson nailed it. Watch the funny video below to see what they think the emoji movie will be about:
