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.
What is disappointing? All of it?
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.
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
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....
>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
>They changed the name? To what?
Live. Die. Repeat.
English language remakes of popular foreign-language films is not a new occurrence. They are not limited to Japanese language films either.
>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?
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.
This was an Elfen lied rip off, right?
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"
>Keanu will be 60 when Cowboy Bebop production starts
... 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.
