Partly owned by the Hilton family, EnterAktion Studios has teamed with Asia Legend on four CG features, reports VARIETY. Each film will have a budget of $12 million and will be produced between Hong Kong's Asia Legend, Legendtoonland and Los Angeles-based EnterAktion.

The first two projects are set to start production in the summer. LIFE WITH DWEGONS' plot is being kept quiet, but it is scheduled for completion in early 2009. LOS OPOLIS follows the creature that live in an underground building.

Electric Forest, which is a fantasy musical, will start production in the close of 2008, while ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SEA, which centers on a captain's trip to the Bermuda Triangle, is set to begin production in 2009.

EnterAktion and Asia Legend were partnered together via a Hong Kong trade mission called ImaginAsian.

Opening in April, Legendtoonland currently resides on 50 acres of land, but will eventually expand to 300 acres. The production house will cost $46.4 million in total to create.

Co-chairman/founder Tom Walsh is the principal owner in EnterAktion along with the Hilton family. The company hopes to become a premiere producer of CG features and TV series.
