Sony Pictures Animation has agreed a deal with comic-book publisher Platinum Studios. This marks the first collaboration between Sony and Platinum Studios CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, since their two Men In Black movies.
"I have known and respected Scott Rosenberg for many years as a great resource of characters, stories and ideas," Bob Osher told the Nest. "We're looking forward to working with him and Platinum Studios to develop a feature from their library of stories and characters.
"It is great to be working with Bob and Sony again," added Rosenberg. "And Hannah has the perfect energy and creative tenacity to drive us into a fantastic feature world."
Platinum Studios' film and TV division has various other properties in development at major film studios, including Atlantis Rising at DreamWorks with Kurtzman/Orci (Transformers) set to produce, Cowboys and Aliens also at Dreamworks with Kurtzman/Orci partnering with Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, and Unique at Walt Disney Pictures and Dead of Night with Hyde Park Entertainment with Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) starring and Kevin Munroe (2007's TMNT) directing. Gale Anne Hurd's Valhalla Motion Pictures and Platinum Studios are currently co-developing feature films based on the soon-to-be-published action thriller graphic novel Final Orbit and Top Cow's Magdalena.
