Well, that was mostly unexpected: Halo Legends producer Joseph Chou offered up that the live-action Evangelion film is still "very active."
This is pretty interesting, since now-defunct ADV was the company that had the rights to the film (and is still listed as such on IMDb Pro, though I will note that IMDb Pro is not necessarily the fastest to update). But then again, those rights are probably among those that ADV signed away back in September. At that point, AEsir Holdings was the company that acquired "all the ADV Films assets," while Section23 inherited all the distribution work for those same assets; I'm guessing the Eva movie is among those.
However, said IMDb Pro listing notes, as many of you will already be aware, that the film has been in development hell since at least 2003. But if it's back onthe calendars?...Well, we'll just have to see. Apparently the complex plot has been a tough sell to Hollywood producers-- but it looks like not everyone balks at it.
So, let the games begin! Let's talk casting and directors. Anyone have any ideas? First person to suggest Michael Cera as Shinji loses all of their account points. (Kidding! Mostly.)
