    Live NGE Movie

    Has anyone heard any news on the Live NGE movie that was said to be made?

    Around 3 years ago, it has been said that there's going to be a live action movie... yes, there's going to be a new Eva series with 4 new movies... does that mean that the Live-action movie's going to be stopped? Actually, I don't it even started in the first place... but thoughts have been put into but nothing is happening yet... I really want to know~~

    From some news from last year on the Live Action movie
    "Since 2003 [Ledford’s] been shopping the idea of making a live-action version of Neon Genesis Evangelion, […] Ledford signed on the Weta Companies, […] to come up with plans for what the Evangelion world might look like. But instead of micromanaging the project, Ledford had Weta answer to two Evangelion fanatics at his company."

    Through badgering and extensive communication with Weta it shows that ADV are taking this film very seriously. This isn’t going to be a cheap knock off; ADV simply cannot afford to offend the great majority of their customers. And to that means it seems they want to do things right, with or without Hideaki Anno.

    "Richard Taylor, Weta's co-founder, says he's never experienced anything quite like it. Twice a week he'd have a conference call with the fans at ADV, sending them renderings of his designs for things like the 100-foot-tall robots and getting in return their encyclopedic take on the interpretations. "These are people who could be considered scholars on the world of Evangelion," says Taylor. "We had to appease them and find their approval."

    It follows on to mention a meeting between Taylor and a proposed producer at the San Diego Comic-Con in an attempt to ‘jump-start’ the production. Budgeting is also mentioned and it seems ADV has raised $100m of the $120 million they need.

    So, what is happening now?

    Actually, nothing is happening now... Weta has officially moved the project to the back burner, having been unable to find a producer and production studio interested in creating the film... Perhaps if/when the 'Battle Angel Alita' movie gets produced, they might try again...

    I'll volunteer to produce it I think they're making a bad move on this one and the should jump all over it to start the tidal wave that will come from it. There are a lot of NGE fans out there who would love to see it happen. Especially since they're doing a Transformer live action as well, bots will be everywhere. Maybe at the same time it is smart to save it after the wave or robots to stay fresh and original.
