Team Bondi in acquisition talks, source claims
L.A. Noire creators to be owned by the director of Mad Max?
An anonymous source has told gaming blog Kotaku that Team Bondi studio head, Brendan McNamara, is in talks with Australian film-company Kennedy-Miller Mitchell (KMM) over a possible acquisition.
KMM is owned by George Miller, director of post-apocalyptic classic, Mel Gibson vehicle Mad Max. Team Bondi, of course, are the studio behind the crime-capper-ing videogame L.A. Noire.
McNamara and a number of Team Bondi staff members were apparently given a tour of Miller’s animation studio, currently busy working on Happy Feet 2.
“The word is going round that Team Bondi is being folded into KMM studios,” a source said. “Team Bondi is pretty much doomed after the [crunch] scandal and can’t find any new supporters, so by doing this they can hide their name.” Another source claimed that Miller was “incredibly impressed” by McNamara’s refusal to compromise his awork on L.A. Noire for the sake of meeting a set deadline.
