Interplay Entertainment announced today that it has signed an agreement with Earthworm Jim creator Douglas TenNapel to serve as a creative consultant on Earthworm Jim 4.

Earthworm Jim, of course, has a distinguished gaming portfolio, including Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2, Earthworm Jim 3D, and Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy. The franchise was also briefly made into an animated series on The Kids WB! in the mid-90s. As a result of its previous success Interplay is banking on the franchise to be one of the cornerstones of its comeback, including the first two games seeing a re-release on the Wii Virtual Console.

In addition to the game, TenNapel will also help develop an animated series and feature film based on the Earthworm Jim franchise.
