"Heavy Metal", the adult illustrated, science fiction fantasy magazine, in continuous publication since 1977, will partner with Allyance Media Group's DiGa Studios, to adapt original "Heavy Metal" content for television, film and a whole lot more:
"I grew up as a fan of 'Heavy Metal' magazine, and remember wearing out the videotape of the 1981 film, so this is a dream come true for me," said Tony DiSanto, founder, CEO of Allyance Media Group.
"'Heavy Metal's stories, characters and art have had a tremendous impact on the sci-fi and fantasy genre globally, and we can't wait to collaborate on creating new content together across all mediums."
"Taking 'Heavy Metal' off the page and onto the screen has been a core focus for us," said "Heavy Metal" CEO Matt Medney.
"Through this partnership, we'll be able to activate this exciting proposition, bringing together passionate creators who care about great stories to create memorable experiences.
"A flagship for DiGa is their ability to think farther than the screen — the possibilities are endless for what we can imagine, and who we can imagine with."
"At DiGa Studios we are always looking to find new opportunities that will excite and challenge us creatively. This multi-dimensional partnership with 'Heavy Metal' is an exciting new chapter in our story," said Tommy Coriale, head of DiGa Studios.
"From the first meeting with Matt and the 'Heavy Metal' team, I knew they were going to be an amazing strategic partner in our drive to expand our footprint in scripted content, podcasts and publishing."
