So I was looking at a list of remakes that are going to be made by American studios in the next 5 years and I'll tell you what I saw

Ghost in the Shell (no duh)
Akira (is that even still a thing)
2 Death Note movies (Why 2 death note movies and will Zach Effron be playing Light)

Now I saw online that there are 2 reasons why there are so many American made anime movies.
Reason 1: America really wants to suck Japan's dick
Reason 2: Ever since that strike back like 8 years ago studios aren't willing to make movies with new ideas in hear that it would cause another strike so they are going after anything they can get their hands on.

Not a movie but I'm still waiting on the Monster adaptation by HBO
>>
>>120727309
welp, that's fucking disappointing
>>
>>120727407
I'm hoping it doesn't go to shit
>>
>>120727309
They're made to reach a new audience, and aren't made for the actual fans of the original anime.

Also GitS and Akira are guaranteed to be shit. (If they ever get made.)
>>
>>120727309
What about Battle Angel Alita or whatever it was called?

And Shane Black was looking at Bleach too.
>>
>>120727430
What is disappointing? All of it?

>>120727468
I know what OP is talking about it was in an interview with the guy from Scrubs and they were interviewing him on why he made a movie on Kickstarter rather then go to a studio and he just spilled the beans.
>>
Drake and Josh anime fucking when

I didn't see anything about those sorry. Maybe they aren't far enough to actually even be planned in 5 years.

Or maybe a pipe dream
>>
Let's just hope all of these projects stay in development hell.
>>
>>120727309
I hear the death note movie is being made by Gus Van Zant, so that is a would see for me

the other two can fuck off straight to eternal hell

Well then again that happened to an EVA movie and it turned into Pacific Rim because they lost the rights to make a movie using the plot or look of EVA. That turned out great though so....
>>
>>120727563
I, too, fear anime becoming mainstream. What if the normals come and bully us?

Why it would be like high school all over again.
>>
>>120727643
Good thing that happened, if they had made that an EVA movie it would have just confused general audiences and flopped.
>>
>>120727673
Akira is as mainstream as anime can get. Kanye West even tweets about it.
>>
>>120727723
Oh yeah I agree completely

>>120727673
You didn't have an anime gang that could have beat up any other group of people in High School?
>>
>>120727510
Zac Effron and Death Note in one sentence makes me cringe
>>
>studios aren't willing to make movies with new ideas
Everything has been nothing but adaptions and remakes for awhile now. But now they're running out of interesting material. That's why they're grabbing at lightnovels and anime. They do a piss-poor job every time, I don't know why they even bother. Even Edge of Tomorrow was struggling in American Box Offices.
>>
I kinda want to see an American made Death Note movie to be honest. I mean of all the places to kill criminals and get away with it, I feel like America would be perfect.

This actually made me start to rewatch Death Note
>>
>>120727309
>watching or even thinking about any live action adaption
Yeah, no. Kill yourself. Live action adaptions have always been pure cancer and will always be pure cancer.
>>
>>120727895
>Even Edge of Tomorrow was struggling in American Box Offices.
And they had to change the name just to sell Blurays and DVDs.
>>
>>120727895
Oh you should see the list.

http://www.imdb.com/list/ls052091214/

There is a lot in the works

>>120727945
They changed the name? To what?

English language remakes of popular foreign-language films is not a new occurrence. They are not limited to Japanese language films either.

>>120727643
>that happened to an EVA movie and it turned into Pacific Rim because they lost the rights to make a movie using the plot or look of EVA.
That is literally the first I've ever heard of this. Do you have reliable source for this?
>>
>>120728013
Moe is shit, buddy. As well as live action adaptions, I just call what's shit, shit.
>>
>>120728007
>>120728057
And here I thought that failing to be subtle with their title was a Japaneses thing.
>>
>>120728093
Oh the source is completely gone now since there are so many blog posts about how similar they are since the movie came out and the article I saw about them loosing the rights to make the EVA movie was like a year before it had come out.

I'll try though.
>>
>>120728007
>>120727945
Should have kept the original name from the light novel. The poorly phrased English would have attracted more audience than either of those.
>>
>>120727407
this would absolutely kick ass


Who would be Tenma?mcconaughey?
>>
>>120728007
That title is such a Hollywood blockbuster shit title.
>>
>>120728007
That just looks like a ridiculously over-sized tagline instead of an actual name change, it even still has Edge of Tomorrow at the bottom there.
>>
>>120727895
Sounds an awful lot like the Japanese anime industry too.
>>
>>120728230
It's the only way to guarantee you'll make money.
>>
>>120727407
I cannot fucking stand HBO shows. They're uncanny valley as fuck.
>>
This was an Elfen lied rip off, right?
>>
>>120727895
But Edge of Tomorrow was fun
I'm looking forward to Tom Cruise's Yukikaze adaptation too.
>>
>>120728270
I don't know... it was more drug related then time traveling woman race making man killing thing
>>
>>120728178
>>120728198
They did keep the original title for the japanese and Chinese release
>>
>>120727895
Adaptations and remakes have been the name of the game since very, very early on in film.

>>120728270
No, it was just dumb sci-fi schlock.
>>
>>120728270
no, lol.
>>
>>120727643
Pacific Rim was fucking garbage.
The only thing it had going for it was it's huge budget, which made it look pretty.
>>
>>120728270
never seen that movie but it sounds really like limitless
>>
>>120728319
They should just cast the guy on the next ACE COMBAT game
>>
>>120728270
>>120728270
no, that totally was Elfen Lied ripped off, chopped and screwed for American audiences
>>
I'm waiting for Seikon No Qwaser to get a live action adaption. With Katie Perry and Canoe Reeves.
>>
>>120728093
>>120728176
Oh... ummm... so it looks like Pacific Rim being an EVA movie but they lost the rights wasn't actually what happened.

Guillermo del Toro maybe be involved in a Neon Genesis Evangelion live action movie that is directed by Micheal Bay and he never lost the rights to make it.

Pacific Rim was something that Guillermo Del Toro wanted to do in the mean time and he was rumored to be involved but said recently "Michael (Bay) should just let the Japanese handle the project"

It was Limitless for retards.

>>120728476
Del toro is currently involved in making Silent Hill with Kojima.
>>
>>120728652
Misaka is Magneto's Granddaughter
Misaki is Xavier's Granddaughter

hence their various displays of rivalry-friendly throughout the series.

>>120728827
... doesn't mean he wouldn't be working on more then one thing at a time.

Besides it was only rumored back then that he was involved in an EVA movie, but it turns out that Michael Bay was behind it all.
