Hasbro Studios has hired T.J. Fixman, the writer perhaps best known for his role leading storyline development for Insomniac Games’ Ratchet and Clank video game series, as creative consultant, according to Deadline. Fixman will be charged with building stories for Hasbro brands for film, television, and digital. Hasbro has a broad portfolio of toy and game brands, including those from Wizards of the Coast, and has two movies in development, a My Little Pony film (see “New ‘My Little Pony’ Movie Planned”), and Ouija 2.
