Production History

As Project U was being formulated in 2012 and 2013, it had already been decided that most of the films would be adaptions of different LEGO themes. However, as development went on, Raul Flores (director of New Friends ~ An Environmental Fable) suggested throwing original characters into the mix. While the talks focused mostly upon Legends of the Universe, the idea was pursued as its own film later in 2013.

The idea that eventually became B.I.O. Corps came from two thought experiments. The first was deconstructing the concept of bio-augmentation and figuring out how real people with real problems would deal with becoming genetically-altered beings and the consequences that would entail (after all, altering someone's genetics to have beyond humanly-possible capabilities would have its set-backs). The other, which came from the establishment of the official cinematic universe in March 2013, was what had happened to Com 50 after Com 50-3: Raid on Central Island. While Com 50 does not appear in this film, he was made into a retired spy, training the next generation of recruits. Most of the story details were in flux throughout 2013, with writing officially beginning in 2014.

The film was officially announced on February 21, 2014 at The Second Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Fan Choice Awards, alongside the rest of Project U, with the title Team G.A.C.T.T.C.G.A. (later changed over copyright and branding concerns). Just a few weeks prior, writing had officially begun, with plot points, character names, continuity nods, and more being cherry-picked from two cancelled projects: Com 50 Covert Operations: The Interactive Adventure and Mission: Klaus. Writing would last through to the end of 2015, with this conclusion resulting in a mandate to introduce the film's main characters before the film officially debuts. This resulted in the release of the films Rift, New Year's Resolution, Clone, and The Pen.

In 2020, during a re-write of the in-development films for Project U, this film received several tweaks throughout its script, which enhanced some character dialogue, fixed some retroactive continuity snarls caused by the introductory films for the characters, and better explained some of the film's mysteries.

B.I.O. Corps contains examples of the following tropes.

  • Bio-Augmentation: This is how the team members get their superpowers.
  • Mook Promotion: The last time anyone ever saw Hayman Talon was in Com 50-3: Raid on Central Island, where's he's literally named "Cal Pada Spy" (he lampshades this in one of his speeches) and has little screen time. Here, he's now the main villain, who is spearheading a movement to resurrect Cal Pada in his image.
  • Our Dark Matter Is Mysterious: The Maelstrom downplays this. Almost all of the characters call the substance "the dark matter," but it's not actually dark matter. It's a mutating agent from an alternate dimension that got its nickname from the changes in behavior that said mutations cause. On an implicit level, dark matter as we know it (or don't) is treated as something else entirely.
