WizKids Plays Games With Mainframe2 Feb, 2005 By: Angelique Flores
WizKids, creator of MechWarrior and other collectible miniature games, has partnered with CG animator Mainframe Entertainment to create a feature-length direct-to-video film based on the MechWarrior series. The 3-D animated feature will introduce new characters and storylines and innovative techniques in CG animation that will give a unique look and feel to the story.
“We got a deal done quickly and have a lot more creative freedom than we would have had if this was a $100 million studio feature,” producer Gregory Little said in a statement.
The film is slated for a 2006 release.
