Brash to make game based on Jumper

Justin McElroy

Way back in the summer we told you about Brash Entertainment, a studio that was going to focus on game adaptations of movies. They sounded pretty edgy at the the time, especially considering they were adapting box-office smash/murder porn Saw at the time. But first, the publisher has to get some more time-sensitive games out of the way like Alvin and The Chipmunks and, we've learned today, Jumper. Collision Studios (300: March to Glory) is developing Playstation 2 and Wii versions of the film coming this February, while RedTribe (Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal) handles the Xbox 360. Wait, two different studios? That's got to be better than one, right?

We're guessing that the question on your mind isn't "How true will they stay to the film?" but rather "What the hell is Jumper?" We've watched the trailer, and as far as we can tell, it's a movie about Hayden Christensen teleporting around while Samuel L. Jackson tries to keep Hayden Christensen from teleporting around. So ... yeah, expect a game somewhere between Crash Bandicoot and awful.
