At the ADV Films panel at Metrocon 2004, David Williams said the
sparseness of news was because all information released on the project
was agreed to be approved by all three parties involved: Gainax, WETA,
and ADV. He did say the movie is moving ahead fine. They are currently
working on script treatments and are down to a shortlist of directors.
In a separate interview, Williams said that there has been no decision
made yet as to whether the film will encompass the entire story of
Evangelion or just the beginning.
I though this might be better suited to the news forum
