Udon Entertainment CEO Erik Ko and Morpheus Studios owner Andy Hung will be co-partners in the new company.
Udon Entertainment also announced that adaptations of William Shakespeare's Macbeth and Bram Stoker's Dracula will ship for the line on September 1. Crystal S. Chan and Julien Choy are working on Macbeth while Stacy King and Virginia Nitōhei (Otherworldly Izakaya "Nobu") are working on Dracula.
