Developer Glu Mobile has debuted Hercules: The Official Game, a tie-in to the upcoming MGM adaptation of the Radical Publishing series Hercules: The Thracian Wars by Steve Moore and Admira Wijaya.
Available now on for tablets and smartphones on App Store and Google Play, the free-to-play hack-and-slash game allows users to become the Greek hero Hercules as he fights his way through ancient battles, undertakes the Twelve Labors, spites the goddess Hera and seeks redemption.
Charles Addams’ creepy and kooky comic creation the Addams Family is being revived again for the big screen — this time in animated form.
Variety reports that MGM is tying up a deal with media company BermanBraun for the macabre movie, which will be written by Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House). A stop-motion adaptation based on Addams’ original drawings was previously in the works at Illumination Entertainment, with Tim Burton set to co-write and co-produce, but that was revealed in July to be canceled.
