But it would almost be worth it if he gets Kyle McLaughlin to play Gendo.

I think it'd be a different story if Lynch had more control on the film than he did with Dune.

Off the top of my head, I think the only TV show WETA did was Jane and the Dragon. At least that's the only one that I know of.

EDIT: Nope. I was way wrong.

In anticipation to watch 3.0 so we can have these types of opposing positive and negative comments about it in some form of discussion, I guess we're gonna do it with this subject.

When it comes to big special effects spectacles, I don't know why the practice of two directors isn't more common. How often is it that a person is both a technical wizard AND masterful with actors? Not very. Why not separate those skill sets into a co-directorship, rather than a single person who is kinda OK at both?

But if we must nominate an individual... um... Sion Sono (Suicide Club, Love Exposure). Kinda crazy, but it would at least be interesting. He and Anno seem to be on the same wavelength, L.E. is almost an Asuka/Shinji story already. Targeting the Japanese market before expanding (20th Century Boys) might be more successful (financially and creatively) than Americanizing things. "Shawn Ikariberg" wouldn't be the protagonist.

Not this guy. I'd pick Chris Nolan over James Cameron for a project like this, and I'm not sure if I even want Nolan on the job.

No, I still think CGI is still not at that point were it would look polished enough. Apart from that Cameron's not my first pick

Even today CGI can be a bit inconsistent especially with movies

CGI for the most part is a joke in itself, and not a necessary ingredient for an Evangelion adaptation.

I'll digress for just a moment; it really depends on which Evangelion story is being told. It goes without saying that any adaptation, especially one like this would need to be so impossibly condensed that much of the heart of the original would be lost (even Anno knew a series of films would be required for NME). Would a live action Evangelion encompass all the character drama and the case studies of the characters we all know and love, or will it be stripped down to focus on the Angel's war on humanity? Or perhaps something else entirely.

I would personally prefer that any adaptation attempt to keep the heart of the characters alive, rather than bedazzling us with the stunning realism of Eva versus Angel. For that, CGI would still be needed, yes, but hopefully sparingly; it would create a great opportunity to employ more practical effects, which I also prefer. Keep the Evangelions and Angels mysterious, and focus primarily on the character performance. Honestly, I'd rather just see a shitty, cheap budget film adaptation that kept Shinji alive rather than a big Hollywood blockbuster with Michael Bay-splosions. That is all.

Michael Bay+Evangelion :scanners_head: Never
But seriously The though of any Evangelion story that isn't character driven would not be a story I would want to watch. If I have to wait for the movie that's fine and if it never happens then oh well.

Which James Cameron? Aliens and Terminator James Cameron or Avatar and Titanic James Cameron?

If it's the former, then HELL YES. The man creates incredibly good action sequences while never taking the focus off the characters and their emotional journey. If it's the latter, then no. Emotional journeys come second to special effects and cheap-shot scripts.

Eva doesn't particularly need any new visions. Between the AUs, doujins, promotional razors, rebuild films, and manga, there's enough out there to show that more is not always better.

No ,for two reasons, first, never liked DB, second, never trusted american view of Japanese animes, but why ? was the cgi used those of cheap sci fi channel movies type ?

Seriously, evangelion doesnt need much cgi save for the angels and giant robots to look convince, everthing else (matte backgrounds, virtual set, etc) are all standart in the industry now.

Yeah Sci-fi channel CGI bad.
otherwise I agree with you rendering backgrounds isn't too hard nowadays.
