Brash Entertainment has announced it is developing Jumper, a video game based on the upcoming science fiction film of the same name from Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Enterprises. The Jumper video game will be available for the PlayStation 2, Wii and Xbox 360, and its release is planned to coincide with the film launch, with the game slated for February 12th, 2008 and the theatrical release following on February 15th. The concept revolves around "Jumpers," people with a genetic anomaly that gives them teleportation ability, and an ongoing war between the Jumpers and the Paladins, a secret organization set on eliminating them from the planet. The film will be directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), and will star Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilson, Jamie Bell, and Samuel L. Jackson. Brash was co-founded by Mitch Davis and Nicholas Longano, both veterans of in-game advertising company Massive Incorporated, as well as Thomas Tull, executive producer of the film 300, and media and technology industry entrepreneur Bert Ellis. Davis, who recently talked film and game crossovers at the Hollywood & Games Summit, said, "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. 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."
