John Woo And Sega Come Together

Tiger Hill EntertainmentTM, a new interactive entertainment studio backed by famed film director, John Woo, today announced its operations and its mission to redefine the action/adventure video game genre with its innovative approach to interactive entertainment development and production. Founded to take advantage of the creative talents of John Woo and his producing partner, Terence Chang, the company announced world-renowned video game developer, SEGA® as its premier partner to establish itself as a leader in the interactive entertainment industry. According to the agreement, Tiger Hill Entertainment and SEGA have entered into a multi-year partnership to co-create and publish video games based on original and existing John Woo and SEGA properties. The formation of Tiger Hill Entertainment and its partnership with SEGA marks the first time a film maker and video game developer will simultaneously collaborate on original properties to be developed into video games, as well as potentially expand into other forms of mainstream entertainment including film, comic books and toys. "Interactive entertainment has quickly become a mainstay in the entertainment industry," said John Woo. "With games being cinematic by nature, it only makes sense to bridge the gap between film maker and game developer to deliver the ultimate action/adventure gaming experience. The formation of Tiger Hill Entertainment and the company's partnership with video game industry veteran SEGA will deliver that experience." "John Woo's incredible sense for action films and his deep story telling abilities combined with SEGA's innovative approach to game development will help shape the future of action/adventure games in this industry," said Shinobu Toyoda, executive vice president of content strategy and business development, SEGA of America, Inc. John Woo is best known for A Better Tomorrow, Hardboiled, Face/Off, Mission Impossible 2 and many other award winning action/adventure films. Tiger Hill Entertainment is headquartered in Santa Monica, California, and is lead by Brad Foxhoven, president, and Lori Tilkin, vice president. Tiger Hill Entertainment also plans to expand within the comic book and toy industries in near the future. The Endeavor Games Group along with Tom Hansen and Stewart Brookman of Hansen, Jacobson, et. al., and Keith Boesky of Boesky & Company represented Tiger Hill Entertainment in the deal.
