From the moment Cartoon Brew was established, no film has gotten the coverage that Threshhold Entertainment’s ill-fated CG animation feature, Foodfight, has recieved.
To recap: In 2004, CG animation studio Threshold Entertainment and Motion Picture Magic (a product placement company in Encino) teamed up to produce a “food” version of Toy Story. Foodfight would team 80 name-brand products and their associated characters, including Mr. Clean, Cap’n Crunch, Charlie the Tuna, the Engergizer Bunny and the Brawny paper towel man, in an adventure set in a supermarket city — with a voice cast including Charlie Sheen, Eva Longoria, Ed Asner, Chris Kattan and Christopher Lloyd. In 2007, Lionsgate announced they were picking up the film – for a release that never happened. In 2010, a Brew reader spotted some licensed merchandise from the film. Last year, International Film Gauarantors auctioned the film to the highest bidder when Threshold defaulted on their loans.
