Moviemaker Jerry Bruckheimer has added video-game developer to his resume--after teaming up with a gaming company for the first time.

The Pirates of the Caribbean producer will now work in partnership with MTV Games to develop original concepts for brand new computer experiences.

He tells MTV.com news, "I think the New Year is upon us, and we all make our New Year's resolutions. It's time to set our creative energies into other areas I haven't been in before, so it's a perfect time for me."

And he admits he will bring the same leftfield approach to his video-game making as is displayed in his moviemaking.

He adds, "I think the same kind of stuff we bring to television and films. We always want to look at things a little differently from other people. Pirate films were dead for a long time, and we put Johnny Depp in it and created an unforgettable character. We did the same thing with fighter pilots in Top Gun and dancers in Flashdance. So we're just trying to see things a little differently."
