After The Angry Birds Movie earned over US$300 million (RM1.24 billion) in box office worldwide, we’re not surprised to see more studios turning games into films. The next mobile game we’ll see in theaters soon? Fruit Ninja.
New Line Cinemas has landed the rights to produce a live-action adaptation of the fruit-slicing game. J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani, the writers behind How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack at Sony Animation, will be working on the script for Fruit Ninja.

According to the studio, the story will revolve around “a team of misfits who are recruited to become Fruit Ninjas in order to save the world”.

With over one billion downloads since its first release in 2010, Fruit Ninja is now the second most-downloaded iOS game of all time, a mere step away from Candy Crush Saga.
Now, real life ninjas might just be a little more interesting than angry birds fighting evil pigs, don’t you think?
