The Official Untitled Legendary Live Action Gundam Movie Thread Mk I

Post by Dark Duel » Wed Apr 14, 2021 8:24 am

Starting a new thread, since it's been two years or so since there's been any word on this. But I found an article with a bit of news on the project last night:
Jordan Vogt-Roberts To Direct ‘Gundam’ Live-Action Movie From Legendary & Netflix

I'm...cautiously optimistic. I really enjoyed Kong: Skull Island, and Brian K. Vaughan's an award-winning writer in comics; plus I've read some stuff he's written, and they've ranked pretty highly among the better comics I've read. Looking forward to seeing what those two can do.

Well hopefully it turns out well. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is apparently a Gundam fan (and his Twitter seems to support this). Plus Legendary did great work on the Pacific Rim films; so at the very least they will look much better than G-Saviour, hopefully the story works out as well...

It is confirmed on Netflix's Twitter, that it will be a digital stream release.
And also confirms everything else from the first post of this topic.

I don't think Bandai will let history repeat itself, after the backlash of G-Saviour in the past.

Did they say the setting is during Hathaway's Flash or something?
I am a Gundam!

Nothing at all has been said about the setting of this movie.

Let Ryan Johnsson direct it, we all need a dose of "subverting expectations"
