The original Transformers movie director brings us Future Fighters

From Nelson Shin, director of the original Transformers: The Movie, comes Future Fighters, a Mechs-in-space extravaganza that even includes Darth Maul himself, Ray Park.

This teaser was created to gather interest and the project is now listed as "in production" with a release date of 2011. To give you a sense of where it's all headed, we've also included some artwork below.

Synopsis:
In the 22nd Century the darkest region of space lies in the hearts of men." The fate of all humanity rests with a small clutch of brave soldiers, and their sophisticated intra-stellar fighting machines, as they must defend the free solar system from a sinister invading force, in order to fight... for their future. But when allies become enemies and enemies become allies, battle-lines and allegiances are blurred as humanity races to save itself... from its own utter destruction.

And here's some artwork, including the movie's poster:
