THQ Acquires Licensing Rights for a Big Upcoming Dreamworks Film
Up, up and away on future releases
THQ Wireless has announced that it's entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Dreamworks Animation to publish and distribute games based on the studio's upcoming animated feature for 2010.
"The DreamWorks Animation brand is among the best in animation and storytelling," said Brian Farrell, President and CEO, THQ. "The superhero theme of the fall 2010 film project lends itself seamlessly to an interactive gaming adventure. DreamWorks' creative vision and humor will add another dimension to our portfolio, which we believe will help further distinguish both THQ and DreamWorks as leaders in our respective entertainment categories."
Tentatively titled, Mastermind, little is known about the film at the moment besides that it's a satirical look at the superhero genre ala The Incredibles with a plotline that takes on the dynamics of the whole superhero/supervillain relationship. Essentially, the film's villain has accidentally killed off his archnemesis, Uberman, and now must seek some new motivation in order to continue his villainy in an appropriately villainous manner.
