Two independent developers are reportedly filing suit against Brash Entertainment. Los Angeles-based 7 Studios is reportedly seeking $468,000 for its work on Tim Burton film game 9
and $113,000 for work on Six Flags Fun Park
, while Slovenian developer Zootfly claims it's owed $748,000 for work on the video game version of Fox TV show Prison Break.
The report comes from Hollywood trade paper Variety
, who has been following Brash's troubles closely over recent months. Variety's Ben Fritz spoke to 7 Studios CEO Lewis Peterson, who said he hopes that Brash, slated to shut down completely
, will find another publisher for Wii and DS game Six Flags Fun Park
"I honestly believe it would have been the best game Brash had produced," Peterson told Variety -- also revealing that the title was never intended to tie into the titular theme park and was initially billed as an "original casual mini-game adventure."
Brash was originally established with a $400 million financing deal, and claims to have gained the use of more than forty film licenses through partnerships with five major film studios. After a recent rash of executive departures
, however, the company is believed to be ceasing operations.
The company had announced a number of new licensed titles including Six Flags, The Tale of Despereaux
. Other unannounced titles are rumored to include 300, Where the Wild Things Are, Clash of the Titans
and Night at the Museum 2
