    GKIDS announced on Thursday that it has acquired the North American distribution rights to Studio 4?C and Ankama's Mutafukaz film. The company plans to release the film theatrically in English under the title MFKZ on October 11.

    French video game and comics publisher Ankama and Japan's Studio 4?C (Tekkon Kinkreet, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc) are co-produced the film based on Guillaume "Run" Renard's Mutafukaz comic series. Renard himself directed the film with Tekkon Kinkreet animation Tekkon Kinkreet animation director Shoujirou Nishimi. Shinji Kimura (Tekkon Kinkreet, Steamboy) served as art director.

    The project was first announced in 2011, and the staff announced in 2015 that the film was slated for release in 2017. The film screened at Annecy in June 2017 and at the inaugural Animation is Film Festival in October 2017.

    Renard's original comic series is set in "Dark Meat City" ? a "pre-apocalyptic American urban jungle" ? and revolves around Angelino, a young man whose scooter accident results in the acquisition of supernatural powers. Ankama's official website for the comic stated that it is inspired by science fiction of the 1950s, hip hop music, and wrestling.

    Titan Comics released the first volume of the original French graphic novel in English-speaking countries in 2015.

        Genre-mashup MFKZ is the collaboration of French comic artist Guillaume ?Run? Renard and ultra-hip Japanese animation house Studio 4C, creators of Tekkonkinkreet, Genius Party and Mind Game. The Tekkonkinkreet dream team of Shojiro Nishimi and art director Shinji Kimura reunite to bring to life a dark but stunningly animated sci-fi vision that mixes anime, film noir, and Lucha Libre in an orgy of video game-inspired mayhem.

        The film centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis ? a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.

                Any info on languages included? Hoping for the original French, with actual accurate subtitles. With Universal being the distributor, not sure how much I should expect them rather than dubtitles, though.

                  It's too early to say. The only reason the pre-order listings are up because Universal is involved. We probably won't have the release details until it's officially solicited.
