CULVER CITY, CA -- If a picture is worth a thousand words, then emojis just proved they're worth at least two commas. That's the latest out of Hollywood about Sony Pictures which just won a nearly seven-figure bidding war for the rights to make a movie starring the popular expressions.
Thanks to this year's emoji update, the movie shouldn't have to worry about the lack of racial diversity in the cast -- an issue that’s plagued certain films like Ridley Scott’s Exodus.
This is just the latest example of Tinseltown believing it can make absolutely anything into a movie. Like Pixels, the movie attempting to bank off the nostalgia of old arcade games.
And don't forget the must-see Lego Movie. It earned over $460 million worldwide!
So, who can blame Sony for thinking they can turn emojis into cash? Once it's released, you'll get your chance to give it a cyber thumbs up or thumbs down.
