Couldn't find a relevent thread but here is a bit of scary anime news
Neon Genesis Evangelion: It was bound to happen, but even I was surprised by the speed. ADV Films has confirmed that they're teaming with game studio Gainax Network System and "Lord of the Rings" FX shop WETA to produce a live-action feature-film based on the Japanese anime TV series. One of the artform's biggest success stories, the 26-episode NGE saga told the story of the reluctant young pilot heroes who were in charge of mankind's fight against a series of massive monster 'Angels' by use of giant robots called Evangelions (resulting pretty much every week in Godzilla-esque fights between two skyscraper sized beings in an urban metropolis). The show was filled with biblical references, X-Files conspiracies, a somewhat unique sense of humour, and philosophy at a level that makes Matrix Reloaded look pre-schooler in comparison - indeed the last few episodes of the show became so abstract and confusing a TV movie was released a few years later which capped off the storyline in a way that was still difficult to understand but at least made sense. Even though the project is in early stages of development, its being moved forward rather quickly it seems. Thanks to 'Ali', 'Travis', 'Olivier', 'FanHalen'.
I can not see this working at all... It just can't...
