Peace Is Nothing But A Result of War: Jordan Vogt-Roberts To Direct Live Action Gundam For Netflix

Posted By themoviesleuth 1107 days ago on Entertainment -  It's Monday and you know what that means! A lot of interesting news is hitting the web. This afternoon, it's been announced that Jordan Vogt-Roberts will be helming the live action film adaptation of Gundam for the streaming monolith, Netflix. His last film for Legendary was 2017's Monsterverse hit Kong:Skull Island and now he'll move on to the futuristic universe of Mecha in a brand new movie that's being readied for production. Legendary and Netflix recently worked on Enola Holmes, Pacific Rim: Uprising and Spectral together before re-teaming for this new iteration of Gundam. While there are no story or plot details announced yet, the script is being written by Brian K. Vaughan. Initially announced way back in 2018, the film has been on the back burner for three years now. Gundam was first introduced in 1979's Mobile Suit Gundam and has spawned several different versions that have spanned decades now. It remains one of Bandai Namco's biggest yearly earners. Obviously, we'll update this story as we hear more. This is exciting news! Hopefully they can nail this one and give us something that's good for the fans and can also drum up a brand new audience for the franchise. -CG (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = (document.location.protocol == "https:" ?
