Legendary Pictures, the same studio who helped produced The Dark Knight and 300 and currently overseeing the adaptation of Gears of War and World of Warcraft is seriously moving into the video game production business. The long-rumored appointment of former Activision and Electronic Arts executive Kathy Vrabeck as the head of Legenday's new digital division is now official, reports the LA Times.
The company hasn't revealed many plans for games yet, outside of previously announcing The Lost Patrol, a 2010-targeted cross-platform venture where Legendary intends to simultaneously produce a movie, video game and other media.
With the dissolution of Brash Entertainment, a publisher who promised to revolutionize the relationship between Hollywood and video games, Legendary is primed to achieve what Brash always pledged.
Will they suffer the same fate as Brash?
