Oddworld Inhabitants’ co-founders, Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna, have signed a deal with John Williams’ Vanguard Animation to develop CG animated feature Citizen Siege.
Lanning (pictured) will direct and Williams will produce the sci-fi action flick. McKenna will executive produce with Vanguard execs Terry Botwick and Margaret French Isaac. Citizen Siege is set in a world of global corporatism, with some themes found in Lanning’s Oddworld games.
Williams said, “’Abe’s Odyssey’ was a genre busting original game and was the first one I fell in love with. Citizen Siege promises to be an action thriller that, like other great science fiction stories, also has incredible poignancy to the universal issues of our time.”
