Brash Ent. announced the development of a JUMPER videogame, to release alongside the film of the same name from 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises. JUMPER is the science fiction-action-thriller directed by Doug Liman (THE BOURNE IDENTITY), and starring Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilson, Jamie Bell, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Jumpers, people with a genetic anomaly that enables them to teleport instantaneously to anywhere on the globe, have existed for centuries. An age-old battle rages between the Jumpers and the Paladins, a clandestine organization set on eliminating them from the planet. The JUMPER game extends the film's storyline, following Griffin, a battle-hardened Jumper determined to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of the Paladins. Griffin's quest to find the killer spans exotic locales around the world.
"JUMPER is shaping up to be the action adventure film of 2008, and Brash is excited to be there, at the beginning, with a game that further explores the Jumper universe," said Mitch Davis, Co-Founder/CEO of Brash Ent. "We've been working closely with our partners at Twentieth Century Fox to create a game that delves into the world of the Jumpers and the Paladins."
"When you combine all of the talent associated with this film and infuse it with one of the best action film minds today in Doug Liman you know that you're in store for one thrilling experience," said Elie Dekel, EVP, Licensing & Merchandising of Twentieth Century Fox. "Brash will take all of these elements to create a top-notch video game experience that will keep gamers on the edge of their seats."
The JUMPER videogame will be available for the PlayStation 2, the Wii and Xbox 360. The game is scheduled to ship Feb. 12, 2008 -- followed by the theatrical release on Feb. 15, 2008 -- and has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
