The entertainment trade magazine Variety reported last Friday that Japanese animation studio Studio 4°C is collaborating with the French videogame and comics publisher Ankama to create a 2D-animated adaptation of Guillaume "Run" Renard comic series Mutafukaz.
Renard's original comic series is set in "Dark Meat City" — a "pre-apocalyptic American urban jungle" — and revolves around Angelina, a young man whose scooter accident results in the acquisition of supernatural powers. Ankama's official website for the comic states that it is inspired by science fiction of the 1950s, hip hop music, and wrestling.
Variety reports that the animated film will have a budget of US$11-14 million and is tentatively titled Mutafukaz.
Studio 4°C has worked on a variety of international collaborations, including the upcoming remake of the American animated series Thundercats and several projects with Warner Bros. franchises: The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight, and Halo Legends.
