Based on the comics and graphic novel of the same name by David Petersen, the movie Mouse Guard is a set in a medieval world and tells of an order of mice who are the sworn protectors of their realm. Enemies range from predators such as foxes and eagles to other rodents. A sort of Game of Thrones with mice, the series from Archaia/Boom! Studios has won two Eisner awards.
Serkis is the villain of the piece, the Guard’s blacksmith known as Midnight who turns against it. Brodie-Sangster is Lieam, one of the Guard’s newest and youngest members who will be called upon to prove his bravery.
Originally developed at 20th Century Fox, but pulled by Disney after the merger, two weeks before production was scheduled to begin. Currently being shopped elsewhere.
