The way this stink bomb of a project is going Brian Granveldt is probably going to be the director.

Uwe Boll. Just for shits and giggles.
NGE, N. G. E., N. G. Evangelion, Neon Genesis Evangelion.

NOT Eva or EVA. Please. >_<

William Wyler with Ray Harryhausen doing the creature effects.

That is, if this movie had been made 30-something years ago. ;)

Still no news on the director(s)... Come on, ADV, it's almost Spring '07! You said we'd know in the FALL of last year!

I know "no news is good news" and all, but this is rediculous. Really, if they haven't found a director by now, they should just tell us we have to wait longer, if ever. :P

No news is never good news; we've heard a hell of a lot more about the Rebuild than we have on the live action movie, and the plans for the live action movie were announced much earlier. If the live action movies were supposed to be a condensed version of the series, I'd have to think that Rebuild, which is essentially doing the same thing in its first three movies(with some modifications) threw a wrench in their plans a little bit.

Yeah, I'm beginning to be inclined to think that, too. It's just that this subject's been on my nerves for the past two months, so I had to rant in the appropriate topic eventually. Still, if ADV's putting it on hold because of Rebuild, they should tell us that instead of being secretive. It's just really irritating.

Here's a good one. Martin Scorsese. Out of left field? Maybe not. Think about that one for a little bit. 8)

If you've seen The Last Temptation of Christ, you'll see that this isn't totally out of left field. 8)

Martin Scorcesse would be too fancy schmancy. I'd rather have someone with an appreciation for geek culture, like Alex Proyas or Joss Wedon.

They need someone that is good at what they do, has a niche for that type of stuff. For Halo they choose someone with skill, over someone with a name. They need to do the same for EVA, find someone that is good at producing psychological "mind fuck" movies, with talent. However, most of those people will most likely not get supported, as they'd "Burton-ize" it, turning EVA darker globally, not just in the psychological scenes. With the focus turning to the gore, and it being a bloodbath. That is the mind of a sadistic, that is the only true kind of person that do EVA any kind of justice; I know this because I am one.
It will not be canon to the anime, it's impossible for the anime to be completely ported to live action, and it has to be changed in some way. They'd either have to make the series rely less on the extremities, or make the main focus the extremities themselves. If they focused less on the darker part of EVA, it would turn into a futuristic ???Harry Potter??? movie with ???robots??? and conspiracy theory overtones.


I agree. It needs to have the same psychological "mind fuck" in order to get the same "taste" out of it per-say. I think they can actually go to the extremities without focusing into too much of the darker parts of Eva. Just as long as it gets into sufficiently to do it justice.

This will be a tough movie...

Another good one: David R. Ellis. But only so the phrase "FROM THE GUY WHO BROUGHT YOU THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER" could be used on the promotional materials. 8)

They're going to get some hack like Paul W. S. Anderson or Uwe Boll. No self-respecting director will do this.
Awesomely Shitty

-On EMF, as a thread becomes longer, the likelihood that fem-Kaworu will be mentioned increases exponentially.
-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

Like I said, they have 3 directors (big eva fans) wanting to do it. They may not be recognized, but as long as they do Eva justice, we'll recognize them :)

I hope they're able to pull this off with LA Eva.

It won't work, they all have their own vision, style, and taking away from that would make the trilogy very inconsistent. You can get away with stuff like that with anime (a la Anno having the guy that did the sunken Japan movie directing that part of the movie). However when it comes to film that just doesn't work. Think of Burton as an example, almost all of his movies are very darkly shot. Lighting, scenery, costumes, everything is dark and normally grayscaled. Picture him doing part of the movie, and someone else doing another part, it'd be night and day... literally.

Of course the contrast most likely wouldn't be that great, it'd not be a good flowing movie, lead alone a trilogy.

You obviously do not know the unrealistically vivid horrors of Uwe Boll....
