The Hyperions

(2019, feature film) / In Post-Production

I’m happy to announce that I’ve wrapped a new feature film as creative producer called The Hyperions, written and directed by Jon McDonald (Muddy Corman, Chagrin). It stars Cary Elwes, Penelope Mitchell, Alphonso McAuley, and Elaine Tan. Mixing together both live action and animation, the story is about Professor Ruckus Mandulbaum, who in 1960 invented the Titan badge – a device that enables humans to have a particular super power. He took in three down-on-their-luck youths, creating an unusual family of superheroes and they quickly rose to fame and prestige. Over time, however, the commercial family fractured and the Professor replaced the team with a new set of super hero teens. Cut to 1979 when two of the original superheroes are all grown up and wanting their Titan badges back, even if it means robbing the Professor’s museum and taking a few hostages accidentally.
