Looks like Leo's company will have to focus on something else. Aren't they the ones doing Cowboy Bebop?

Probably saw the size of the budget. :shock:

Having read that, it looks someone did us and anime a favour.

There is a god!

Now they just need to confirm the end of the live action GITS, Eva and battle angel Alita and I'll be happy.

Even better would be a studio picking up Alita... I can dream.....

Don't forget they're doing Death Note.

Deathnote has been done, or at least the Japanese version.

So glad to see them quit. Maybe the crap that was Dragonball put them off.

Bebop is going to be torture. Fucking Keanu.

Deathnote wasn't bad. Liked the change of ending.

But I believe there's an American Death Note coming down the line.

Then there's the movie of the anime inspired The Last Airbender.

Every time someone mentions Angelina Jolie and Major Kusanagi in the same sentence I die a little inside. I think Eva is also languishing in development hell at the moment too, right?
As for Alita / Gunnm I thought 20th Century Fox were committed to it since James Cameron is attached to direct and it'll use the jumped up 3D technology from Avatar.

Gawd knows with regards to Blood. It's a little bit of everything; an English speaking Chinese production funded by Japanese and Chinese money directed by a Frenchman and staring a Korean actress. Liam Cunningham's in it though. Huzzah!

I think the boyband one was Ninja Scroll which was rumoured to feature SMAP. That was optioned by DiCaprio's company, mind, and considering how Dragonball fared and with Akira being dropped it wouldn't surprise me if this poor soul was left to rot too.

It's okay. At least we've all got our copies of the live action Fist of the North Star to keep us company right?

.......right?

The thing with these kinds of movies is they can go either way. Ususally the wrong way. But remember when Lord of the Rings was unfilmable and no one believed it would be any good?

As for Fist of the North Star, saw it on tv ages ago. I do own Crying Freeman though starring the mighty Mark Dacascos

Ah Fist of the North Star!

Do think if there was the right kind of director then there would be room for optimism, but imagine if Bay or McG had been given the chance to do the Lord of the Rings! :puke:

Personally not really interested in live versions. Anime is fine to watch. If you don't like it, fuck off and leave it alone.
