From Gears of War to Thundercats

Art boss on Epic's shooter to direct Thundercats CG flick

Thundercats, HO-OH! Jerry O'Flaherty, art director on Gears of War and Unreal Tournament III, is to direct a CG-animated Thundercats

According to a report on Variety, the Thundercats story appealed to O'Flaherty.

"It feels like a natural thing for me to step into," he said while stroking an imaginary mane. "Games have come so far now. The last four years of my life have been about bringing the energy of filmmaking into the videogame experience."

The plot focuses on the origin of the Thundercats, who you may recall had to leave their own planet and crash-landed on another world where they were in constant conflict with Mumm-Ra.

We remember some kid's programme doing a spoof called Thunderpants starring Bumm-Ra. It was much better.
