Brian K. Vaughan to Pen 'Gundam' Movie for Legendary


Recommended Posts

Gundam has enlisted Brian K. Vaughan -- the mind behind popular comic series such as  Y: The Last Man and Saga -- has been tapped by Legendary Entertainment to pen its live-action Gundam movie.




The original Gundam series, which began in 1979, is set in the Universal Century, an era in which people have emigrated to space colonies because of a growing population on Earth. Eventually, the people living in the colonies seek their autonomy, and launch a war of independence against the people on Earth. Battles are fought by piloting robots known as mobile suits. 


The massively popular series has led to multi-billion dollar sales in merchandise and licensing, including animated films, video games, plastic models, toys, and books. Gundam even had a cameo in Steven Spielberg's pop-culture-obsessed Ready Player One.


Legendary will co-produce a feature based on the popular anime from the Japanese animation studio Sunrise.In December, Vaughan inked a three-year overall deal with Legendary for both TV and film to adapt his work and create new titles.


Up next for the creator is FX's series adaptation of Y, for which he serves as an executive producer.

Not excited by this, tbh.

I love Gundam; it is a great franchise, but, I don't really need nor want to see a live movie of it, especially when you consider the quality of most live action anime adaptations.

At this point in the game, the standard attitude should be "It's trash until proven otherwise". It is not healthy, but it is what one failure after another has led me to believe.

Of course, I still want it to be great. You never know, but I'm not really expecting much.
