Platinum Studios and UFO Magazine have struck a deal for the former to develop stories published by the magazine into comic books, video games and feature films. Already two projects have been moved into development and are being made as both graphic novels and as movies:

  • ESCAPE VELOCITY follows what happens when a reporter and a pilot steal a working alien spacecraft from the Air Force. The project is based on a story by Scott O. Brown.

  • HIVE is a tale similar to INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS about a woman trying to escape from the clutches of a dangerous cult. It's based on a story by Andrew Foley.

    Interactive developer Fog Studios is the firm that will work on games based on the partnership between Platinum and UFO.

    As well, Platinum Studios CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg has informed us that his company is seeking pitches for comic book proposals based on the UFO Magazine deal, with Rosenberg looking for as many as 10 new graphic novels present time. Interested writers should venture over to this section at the Platinum Studios website for further details.
