Canadian studio Bron Animation has recently announced that production on their full length CG feature, titled Henchmen, will officially start this fall. The film is based on an original script by Jay D. Waxman and directed by Adam Wood (Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc.).
Henchmen is described as a comedy adventure that focuses on two low-ranking henchmen for hire named Jimmy and The Kid, who are only trying to earn a dishonest living by doing the dirty work for any super villain who’s willing to hire them. The only problem is that the world’s greatest super heroes are constantly foiling all of the evil plots, which means they constantly end up getting the boot. Things get interesting when The Kid gets his hands on a supervillain’s ultimate weapon, which automatically promotes them to the big leagues as every single hero and villain in the world are now trying to catch them.
