Oddworld Inhabitants and Vanguard Animation are set to develop the new CG animated sci-fi thriller, Citizen Siege, with Oddworld's Lorne Lanning making his directorial debut.

Look for a new universe where current global conditions are extrapolated into a frightening near future where democracy has all but disintegrated under the rule of global corporatism for the film, says The Hollywood Reporter. Well-known for their heartfelt characters and socially relevant storylines, Oddworld intends to raise the intensity level as their latest hero, an expatriate, finds himself ensnared in a nightmarish credit racket that leaves him "repossessed."

The Citizen Seige film has no details as of yet; a video game will most likely be in the works.
