Heroes Masi Oka's Movie The Defenders Picked Up by DreamWorks

DreamWorkshas picked up "The Defenders," a family adventure project conceived by"Heroes" actor Masi Oka to be produced by Alex Kurtzman and RobertoOrci. D.J. Caruso is in negotiations to direct, and Gary Whitta is onboard to write the script.

The story centers on a group ofmostly teenagers from around the world who are involved in amultiplayer video game, each unaware of who they really are behind thecover of their consoles and avatars. They are forced to come togetherfor a real adventure, becoming inadvertent heroes in the process.

DreamWorks will develop a video game simultaneously with the feature.

Oka,who will exec produce, came up with idea while playing MMORPGs --massively multiplayer online role-playing games, in that world'sparlance.

"You can be whoever you want to be," he said. "Thequestion came to me: What if you had to live up to the person youcreated in the virtual world?"

Oka had met Kurtzman and Orci,whose Kurtzman/Orci Prods. is based at DreamWorks, at parties and takena couple of meetings with them, hoping to score a role in one of theirmovies.

The pair was looking for "the kinds of movies that Amblin used to do, that combined an innocence with the adventure," Orci said.

Added Kurtzman, "We are staunch believers there are ways to update the tone of these movies."

OnceOka, also a fan of those movies -- epitomized by "The Goonies" --learned that, he pitched Kurtzman and Orci his idea. The duo went forit, and Oka has honed the concept for the past year, collaborating withthem as they worked on "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."Kurtzman/Orci's Mandy Safavi also helped develop "Defenders" and willoversee for the company.

Oka and Whitta, who also plays onlinegames, bonded over their love of the medium's "World of Warcraft."Kurtzman and Orci ensnared Caruso, with whom they worked on the 2008thriller "Eagle Eye."

"D.J. brings a naturalistic sensibility tokids," Kurtzman said. "He also roots the implausible and the reality ina way that allows you to buy the world."

Orci likened online gaming to an obsession for some.

"Peopleare expecting you to be there and to contribute; it's a team, sort of,even though it's virtual," he said. "Masi and Gary have put incountless hours in this world and have found a way to make it work forthose that don't play the game, but also for the millions that do."
