Afterburner plays with Nostromo

Duo adapt 'Fast Glass'

CANNES — Los Angeles-based Afterburner Films is setting up a joint venture with Nostromo Wireless in Prague to produce a mobile videogame — playable on Java-enabled cell phones — for “Fast Glass,” its latest feature film.

The role-playing action game, which will also be called “Fast Glass,” involves players in chase sequences using fast cars and planes.

Nostromo has produced branded games for major titles in recent years for international release including “Shrek 2,” “Casino Royale,” “Mr. Bean” and “Garfield.”

“The unique aspect of our ‘Fast Glass,’ mobile game is its integration into the film by using the game as a basis for one of the characters role in the story,” said Afterburner CEO Dave Riggs.

Afterburner vice chairman Michale Corrigan, an MGM Studios veteran, said the ability to creatively craft the story line to take advantage of these facets of a movie’s release is something we take “extremely seriously in the very initial stages of development.”

“Fast Glass,” starring Andrew Keegan and Brandon Quinn, is about a high-flying group of California surfers.
