The British Columbia-based studio will begin production in autumn on the CGI feature.

Adam Wood makes his feature directorial debut from a screenplay by Jay D Waxman about two low ranking thugs who must find their inner hero after they stumble upon a super villain’s ultimate weapon.

Wood recently served as animation director on Escape From Planet Earth and is a former CG animator at Pixar. He is currently directing Bron Animation’s Mighty Mighty Monsters specials Halloween Havoc, New Fears Eve and Pranks For The Memories.

Bron Managing director Aaron Gilbert [pictured] will produce alongside Barbara Zelinski.

Bron is ramping up its recruiting efforts, and will send a team to computer animation festival Siggraph in Anaheim this month. Bron’s chief technical officer Terry Bates, visual effects supervisor Teunis De Raat, lead pipeline technical director Kirk Chantraine and technical director Dimitry Kachkovski will attend with Bron partner Brenda Gilbert.
