Publisher Strategy First announced that it has partnered with Los Angeles-based video game and film production company Union Entertainment to bring the Jagged Alliance to the big screen. Union and Strategy First have signed on Nick Nunziata (Grizzly Park, Meg) to help develop and co-produce the project.
The original Jagged Alliance game was released in 1994 and has spawned five sequels, with another currently under development at Strategy First.
The project’s title, Jagged Alliance, describes the cutthroat relationships between members of a mercenary team who are ready to sign over their services to the highest bidder. Each a specialist in his or her own discipline, these operatives know that in order to survive their missions, they must rely on, but never trust, each other. The team is assembled from the best of the best by the Alliance of International Mercenaries, an apolitical private organization with its own covert agenda.
