London: 'Game of Thrones' star Peter Dinklage, Jason Sudeikis and Maya Rudolph will join the voice-cast of the forthcoming big screen adaptation of video game 'Angry Birds'.

'Frozen's Josh Gad, Bill Hader, Danny McBride will also join the movie, reports suggest.

Plot details for 'Angry Birds', directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, remain shrouded in secrecy. But it seems Sudeikis will take the lead as the temperamental Red, with Gad as the nifty Chuck and McBride as the explosive Bomb.

Rudolph will voice female bird Matilda, with Hader due to sit on the porcine side of the fence in an unspecified role and Dinklage as the legendary Mighty Eagle.

Producer John Cohen said, "I am extremely proud of this cast. Not only do we have Jason, Josh, Danny, Bill, Maya, and Peter bringing these characters to life, but they are surrounded by an all-star ensemble of emerging comedic talent ? these are some of the funniest people out there today, and we are thrilled to have them all on board."

The movie, a partnership between Finnish Angry Birds creator Rovio and Hollywood studio Sony, is due to hit cinemas in July 2016.
