Gary Sanchez Studios partners Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy are teaming up to executive produce Henchmen, based on the animated short film Henchmen: Ill Suited from Bron Studios.

The short film follows a janitor who works at a bad guy museum in Supervillain City, who somehow gets a hold of a high-powered space suit and causes all sorts of havoc and mayhem. The animated feature will include this character, but it will also focus on a "fallen henchman" named Hank, who is overseeing a "motley crew of blue-collar workers in the Union of Evil." Hank must take a risk for the first time in his life to rescue the janitor in the super suit and save the missing woman he secretly loves. Henchmen: Ill Suited will premiere at the SIGGRAPH 2014 animation convention in Vancouver later this week.

Adam Wood, who directed the Henchman short film, is returning to direct the feature version, from a script rewrite by Dennis McNicholas (Land of the Lost, The Ladies Man). Aaron L. Gilbert and Luke Carroll are producing for Bron.

Gary Sanchez Productions and Bron previously worked together on Welcome to Me, starring Kristen Wiig, which premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
