Patrick Stewart Is Set To Play The Poo Emoji In 'The Emoji Movie'

Today is a dark day

The most depressing idea for a film ever, The Emoji Movie, has somehow (we reckon it's money, lovely money) recruited Patrick Stewart as the voice of the poo emoji.

Releasing this summer, The Emoji Movie is the film that absolutely no one asked for nor wants to see, with the plot following an emoji born with multiple expressions who goes on an adventure in a teenager's phone.

While this whole scenario is both bleak and bizarre, Patrick will also be starring in Logan alongside Hugh Jackman, which we hope will be slightly more tolerable.
