There’s a live-action adaptation from a Japenese anime by an American studio. After Pokemon, this time it’s on Gundam that Legendary Entertainement has set its heart. The company announced it last Thursday during the Anime Expo 2018 and will co-produce the movie with Sunrise, a Japanese studio.
Created in 1979, Gundam was offered in a large range of formats and is still as popular today as it was back then. On the original show, the growing population of Earth forced people to emigrate in space. Those who’re living in colonies are yearning for independence and decide to start an independence war against Earth’s inhabitants.
The live-action movie, which will be supervised by Cale Boyter (Pacific Rim : Uprising, Monster Cars), should be based on the Universal Century. Yasuo Miyakawa, Sunrise’s CEO, explained that before diving into production, Sunrise and Lengedary’s teams will have to reach an agreement concerning the scenario and the mecha-design.
For now, there’s no release date announced yet.
