Washington, Dec 20 A digital entertainment company founded by three Indian Americans is launching a new animated web series by noted filmmaker John Woo created with writer Garth Ennis and Indian artist Jeevan J. Kang.
Liquid Comics, founded by Sharad Devarajan, Gotham Chopra and Suresh Seetharaman, have joined Tiger Hill Entertainment to launch the first four episodes in a 13 episode animated web series from Woo, maker of “Mission Impossible 2″, “Face-Off” and “Red Cliff”.
The animated series is an adaptation of the graphic novel, “Seven Brothers,” created by Woo, with writer Garth Ennis and Indian artist Jeevan J. Kang.
The series is being released exclusively on Machinima (YouTube.com/Machinima), with new batches of episodes to be distributed every two weeks. It can be viewed online at www.youtube.com/machinima.
“Seven Brothers” tells the story of how 600 years ago mighty Chinese treasure fleets on voyages of discovery across continents left behind an evil legacy and a plot by a powerful Chinese sorcerer to dominate the world.
Now, in modern day Los Angeles, an ancient prophecy must be fulfilled and seven men, with nothing in common but their destinies, must face the Son of Hell to save the world.
“‘Seven Brothers’ is a fusion of mythology and edge that only an icon like John Woo and the brilliant creative team behind ‘Seven Brothers’ could pull off,” commented Liquid Comics Co-Founder, Gotham Chopra.
“For Liquid, the future of comic books is about jumping from the printed page on to the digital screen and ‘John Woo’s Seven Brothers’ is the perfect project to launch our new line of animated web shows,” added Liquid Comics Co-Founder & CEO, Sharad Devarajan.
