The Netflix Gundam movie will bring the legendary Japanese mecha action franchise to streaming, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
Netflix is also working on another live-action adaptation of a Japanese anime, Cowboy Bebop starring John Cho, which could arrive as early as this year.
Gundam will be brought to Netflix by Legendary Pictures and directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the American film director behind Kong: Skull Island.
The film only has a working title at this point and Netflix has not announced details on who might be cast or what the plot will be. We do know, however, that Legendary’s Brian K. Vaughan will join the project as a writer and executive producer.
Legendary Pictures has produced both Pacific Rim movies as well as the Godzilla / King Kong “Monsterverse.” Vogt-Roberts is also attached to direct the adaptation of another giant mech franchise: Metal Gear Solid starring Oscar Isaac as Solid Snake.
A release date for the Netflix Gundam movie was not announced.
