ZeptoLab's wildly popular 2010 mobile game Cut the Rope is set to be adapted into a feature film named for the game's adorable, sweets-chomping star, Om Nom. The physics-based puzzle game involves snipping string to guide pieces of candy into the plucky, little creature's mouth.
The popular mobile game Cut the Rope by ZeptoLab’s is due to be adapted into a feature film starring the games sweet-munching star, Om Nom. The puzzle game is centred around cutting swinging, strings of sweets into the frog-like creatures mouth.
The Om Nom film focuses on a young boy named Evan who inadvertently allowed his lab experiment free. When Om Nom's unappeasable appetite wreaks chaos on Evan's small home town, he and his sister Jordan set out to control the madness whilst keeping Om Nom safe from harm.
A movie adaptation of Cut the Rope doesn't come as a surprise given the games huge commercial success. Along with the game amassing over 700 million app downloads for the original game and its sequels. Om Nom also has a YouTube channel that ZeptoLab uses to tell stories to its half a million subscribers, which makes a move to the big screen a logical next step. ZeptoLabs is to team up with Blockade Entertainment to produce the film. It is expected that Om Nom is to hit theatres worldwide late next year.
