    Rovio, the Finnish company behind the hugely popular game, which centres around a group of angry birds being detonated to kill pigs who have stolen their eggs, is looking at turning the company into “a major franchise that crosses over to other platforms — from TV shows and movies to toys and comic books”, according to the company’s chief executive Mikael Hed.

    Talking to entertainment magazine Variety, Hed revealed that Rovio had been doing the rounds of the Hollywood movie studios in the hope that Angry Birds, which has been downloaded by iPhone and iPad users more than 6.5 million times, can be quickly turned into a film.

    He also disclosed that the company has begun experimenting with telling the Angry Birds story through cartoons and hopes the characters can become popular toys. An Angry Birds trailer has been viewed on YouTube more than five million times
