4K Media is gearing up for a major release. Its Yu-Gi-Oh! property, which is based on the trading card game, is currently in development for a feature-length film.
4K Media is now shopping the film for a distributor for all territories outside of Asia.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Yu-Gi-Oh! characters back to theater screens for their enthusiastic fan base,” says Kristen Gray, senior vice president, operations, business and legal affairs, 4K Media. “It’s a major piece in the robust resurgence of the brand that will have significant implications moving forward.”
The “Yu-Gi-Oh!” series is currently in its 14th year of broadcast in the U.S. and is aired in most major markets around the world. 4K Media is a wholly owned subsidiary of Konami Digital Entertainment and oversees the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise for brand management, licensing and marketing outside of Asia.
