Report: Two Developers Sue Brash

Report: Two Developers Sue Brash

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 and Saw. Other unannounced titles are rumored to include 300, Where the Wild Things Are, Clash of the Titans and Night at the Museum 2.
