Arad’s 41 Entertainment, which is behind the recent Pac-Man reboot, will produce a full-length feature film for the streaming service, followed by a 12x30mins series, Kong – King of the Apes, which will be available from 2016.
Set in 2050, the CGI-animated series will see three young humans attempt to help the giant ape save the world from a villain wants to unleash an army of gigantic robots on the world after framing Kong.
Netflix already licences 41’s Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventure, which Arad worked up. He has also produced films in the Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man and Incredible Hulk franchises.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Avi who has made some of the most successful action and adventure franchises today and whose Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventure series has been very popular on Netflix around the world,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix.
Netflix recently commissioned a Saban Brands-produced reworking on the 1980s Poppples brand, and a new version of Italian girls franchise Winx Club.
