Gary Sanchez Productions’ Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy are attached as creative collaborators and executive producers for Henchmen, a feature-length animated film based on the SIGGRAPH 2014 short “Henchmen: Ill Suited.” It will be produced by Bron Studios.

The original short was written and directed by Adam Wood, who will be returning to direct the movie from a script by SNL’s Dennis McNicholas. The movie is scheduled for a 2016 release.

So far I’m loving the visual style. It mixes 3d and 2d elements, with the 2d mostly being effects like water and fire.

Synopsis: “Hank is a lowly class three henchmen in the Union of Evil. It’s not how he pictured his career, but as he says, ‘you just play the cards you’re dealt.’ When Hank is forced to train an excitable young dreamer, he offers the same trite poker metaphor. Instead, the boy steals an amazing super suit, changing everything. Hank enlists a woman from his past Jolene, to help extricate the Kid from suit. Soon, the Kid has fled, and worse, Jolene has been kidnapped. Worst of all, Hank has realized he is in love. Now Hank must break his ‘risk nothing’ code, to save the boy he’s befriended, the woman he loves, and the entire free world!”
