The details of upcoming movie "Emoji" has been revealed with James Corden signed up for the project. James Corden has jumped onboard the forthcoming Sony Pictures Animation alongside Ilana Glazer and previously announced lead T.J. Miller to help put together the big screen comedy based on emojis.

 According to Sunday World, Emojimovie: Express Yourself' will see Miller portray Gene - the only emoji to have multiple expressions - as his alter ego desperately tries to become "normal" like his friends Hi-5 (Corden) and Jailbreak (Glazer). "Hi-5 is a high-five emoji who is a highly motivated, and highly dramatic, hand on a mission, and the brilliantly versatile, ebullient and always lovable James Corden fits this part like a glove.

For the rebel 'break all the codes' computer programmer emoji Jailbreak, Ilana Glazer is the kind of singularly free-spirited, fearless and funny actress to make girls really feel the empowered 'nobody's gonna keep me in a cage' attitude this character exudes". The director Anthony Leondis explained. "And, of course, T.J. Miller has proven himself to be one of the most genuinely inventive comedic actors around, uniquely capable of connecting and who can convey just about any expression."

Kristine Belson, President of Sony Pictures Animation, said: "Over six billion emojis are texted every day, and emojis have become a universal language that transcends age and culture. She also said that that emojis allow you to express yourself in a very fast and funny way and this what the movie about: self expression. They said that they are lucky that they have some of the smartersand funniest actors.

NME reiterate that the film will star James corden that will give voice for Hi-5 and Broad City's Ilana Glazer as Jailbreak, Corden is starred in new animated film Trolls, He will also be the voice of Peter Rabbit.

The world is rooting for this Emoji movie. This is so exciting!
