Guillermo del Toro to produce an anime original series for Netflix.
So how many days until it gets canned like hellboy 3, pacific rim 2, pacific rim animated series, at the mountains of madness, monster, whatever he was planning with kojima and countless other projects?
Wasn't this the director who was SO GOING TO DO a Silent Hill with Kojima's input and get the actor who plays the redneck in Walking Dead in the main role?
But then 5 years later there's no movie and Konami has fired Kojima so they could focus on their core business of operating yakuza offices disguised as Pachinko parlours.
Is it the Pacific Rim anime he was going on about?
All which where Konamis dealings. Del Toro still wants to work with Kojima and now that Kojima has his own company that might still happen someday.
There's a thing which is called "Development Hell" for a good reason. Until the day you actually start shooting a movie or you actually ship a game everything is uncertain.
Del Taco is too much of a fanboy to be a good director. Pacific Rim was forgettable mess that was somehow dumber than '98 Godzilla, and the Strain is just "Zombie Garbage: Vampire Edition".
>Called Trollhunters, the studio’s press release says the animated program “will unleash a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.” No word yet if it will bear any relation to the excellent 2010 Norwegian found-footage movie Trollhunter, but we’re pretty sure an animated found-footage p.o.v. project has yet to be undertaken, an idea we now have to rush out and copyright.
>The project is just one of several properties due to be released this year under the terms of the new agreement between DWA and Netflix, including a “reimagining” of Voltron and adaptations of other past and upcoming Dreamworks films.
Deltoro's thing is /co/.
That was a video game, it's dead
>canned like hellboy 3,
That was a blessing, no one wants to see Hellbabies. It was turning enough into a comedy compared to the source material as is.
The cast were solid though, they just didn't have the right setting.
>implying Hobbit wasn't better than LotR
Also, reminder that this guy is directing the GITS movie
The fuck are you talking about moron; that didn't even make sense.
Also reddit fucking hates this guy because he doesn't give into fucking SJW demands and actually makes good films with strong male protagonists.
>strong male protagonist
So this is what being a good film amounts to you? Get out.
>make a thread about Deltora making an anime original
>it's a lie
>page also mentions live-action adaptation of an anime that no one in the thread, including OP, is talking about
>THREAD IS OKAY, GUYS
Pacific Rim 2 is still on track. They got a script and budget approved already. They just don't have a set schedule.
HBO passed on it and now Del Toro is trying to find alternatives.
Well if it's made by an anime studio (let's say Madhouse just because they love doing shit like this) and is targeted to Japanese anime fans it might count. That's honestly up for debate.
I've got a scenario. I know there's at least one foreign animator in the anime industry. Let's say he works his way up and in 20 years is able to direct his own show. Does that count?
Not sure what sort of debate this is, they might not count as true anime but a lot of stuff like Wolverine, Supernatural, Batman and the Matrix have "anime" it's never really mattered how rigidly the term is believed to apply as long as the show isn't obviously a Western production.
Is it really an anime though if a non-Japanese person envisions it and helms its production, and simply hires out Japanese studios and lets them use their sensibilities on artistic direction? I mean, Thundercats in the 80s was made by a Japanese studio but helmed/directed by Westerners, and no one calls it an anime or argues it should be one.
Even so this is a bit of an aimless question/thread because >>135733822 ...
Judging from what I know of Del Toro though it wouldn't have surprised me at all if his goal would have been an anime very Voltron-like or otherwise early 80s in every facet.
>unless it's made by filthy gaijin piggu
But Disney's Frozen cashed in hard in Japan. Also Won Tokyo Anime Award's animation of the year in the film category as well if I recall.
>script and budget approved already
You faggot almost gave me a heart attack. Script and budget were rolled to the shitheads at universal but they haven't been aproved yet.
I can't believe PR2 got on hold, if it weren't for nigger Kong they would have been shooting since november.
That was a barebones story and plot if you can even call it that much. It was like a Saturday morning cartoon episode drawn out. Nothing happened, nothing mattered.
