THQ signed a deal with Starlight Runner Entertainment to produce backstory content that connects all the dots between Red Faction games and leads up to the recently-announced Red Faction TV movie. Starlight Runner Entertainment plans to develop the plot across film, television, online media, mobile media, books, and graphic novels.
In a statement enclosed with the press release Bilson said, We were impressed by Starlight’s demonstrated track record with numerous high profile transmedia projects including Avatar, Halo, and Pirates of the Caribbean. In order to fully realize our vision of creating franchises that successfully transcend gaming, we're tapping the best in the business with Jeff and his team to make our game fiction more robust and consistent across multiple media platforms.
Starlight Runner's credits include Disney (Pirates of the Caribbean, Tron Legacy), Hasbro (Transformers), 20th Century Fox (Avatar), and Coca-Cola (Happiness Factory). Look forward to E3 for this exciting partnership, and what they will be doing to connect all the dots for Red Faction! Happy gaming :)
