Following recent news that it would be bringing Earthworm Jim to Virtual Console, Interplay has announced it is partnering with franchise creator Doug TenNapel to revive the brand with a new game, cartoon and film.

No details of the new game, currently titled Earthworm Jim 4 were given, but Interplay says TenNapel -- who was also behind critical hits like The Neverhood -- will serve as a creative consultant for the game.

The company also says TenNapel will be developing a new animated series, following an earlier series that ran on The Kids WB! for two seasons, as well as a feature film.

As earlier reported, CEO Herve Caen has said Interplay is undergoing a campaign to utilize its "unique intellectual property, and low debt and operational costs" through initiatives like the Virtual Console releases to "pursue financing for our various projects," which, along with this new Earthworm Jim title, include its planned Fallout-based MMO.
