Brash Entertainment (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Jumper) has announced it will collaborate with Japanese studio Game Republic on an unannounced game based on a Hollywood film.

Game Republic was founded in 2003 by veteran producer Yoshiki Okamoto, credited with the development of major franchises such as Street Fighter and Resident Evil during a long tenure at Capcom. The company's most recent titles include Folklore and Genji for the PS3.

Brash co-founder, chairman and CEO Mitch Davis, talking to Gamasutra, could not yet provide any details on the forthcoming project, but reiterated his company's interest in producing high-end games based on popular films.

Commented Okamoto, One of my goals with games is to do something revolutionary with something thats been never been seen before. The opportunity to re-imagine a fictional world provided by a compelling Hollywood IP using the interactive medium of games is very exciting to me."

He continued, "In collaborating with Brash, we were introduced to a very compelling fictional world and given the freedom to expand it through the game. We are working directly with the creative talent from the film, and feel that the close collaboration will result in an amazing game play experience that immerses the player in an incredible fantasy world.
