What should they do with the Angels origins in the movie? Should they start the movie off with second impact happening then fast forward 15 years later?

Start the second movie with Second Impact. People are willing to suspend disbelief about the origins of giant monsters for an astonishing amount of time.
Nothing is so valuable that it need not be started afresh, nothing is so rich that it need not be enriched constantly.

My thoughts exactly. A friend of mine and I joke that the movie should have a montage ala Watchmen set to "The Times They Are-A Changin'" : P

As long as the LAEM doesnt turn out to be as bad as M. Night Shylaman's "Last Airbender" I'll be satisfied. You cant screw up a cartoon adaptation into hollywood blockbuster as much as he did. The bastard.... :fistshake:

Teen sex and nudity is no biggie in movies, and has not been for quite some time. As long as the actors are 18 or older no-one gives a flying flip. They'd have to make the pilots a little bit older to avoid the appearance of blatant Dawson's Casting (15-16 as opposed to 13-14), but I don't think it really matters that much in the big scheme of things since there's still plenty of puberty frustration going on at that age to create drama for our emo virgin protagonists. And besides, I'm pretty sure most of the fanboys want Asuka and Rei to be hot and to fill out their plug suits nicely, so unless they're into loli they'll probably be happier if the actresses playing them are legal and fully developed anyway.

That's how I do it in my script-- sort of. Second impact is conveyed through a montage of photos from the Katsuragi Expedition, and it ends with satellite footage of the explosion. It's kind of like we're hastily looking through a top secret file folder and getting quick looks at the classified info. It's kept ambiguous for the most part, though, so that the juicy details can be revealed in the story. If I get around to making a script for movie #2 it will start with a flashback of 2nd impact through the eyes of teenage Misato, and then transition to her as an adult leading the team.

The trailers made it look amazing, and then the actual movie ended up being a POS. As M. Night would say...

I have heard rumors that one of ADV's fragments is still working on production. Did anyone else here that and is it true?

Honestly, I'd find that a bit hard to believe. I could certainly believe that if anyone were to hunt down Matt Greenfield at a con and ask him, he'd be happy to tell you that "it's still on" and "we've got an A-list director on board-- expect a big announcement in 6 months," but obviously that doesn't mean jack diddly. I don't even know who owns the rights now that ADV is gone.

I agree. Producers like Greenfield have an ego to fill, even if it's with vein words and empty promises. Trust me. I work on the editing of a lot of television pilots. I've been told numerous times on numerous productions "It will be on TV sometime next year! Don't you think it's exciting?" I'd ask for a nickle for every time they've said that and have it not come true, but they give me a whole paycheck instead. So I'm happy.

Oh won't he now? Shyamalamadingdong is scheduled to adapt season two of ATLA as soon as he's done with One Thousand A.E. (Which I had some hope for actually, given that he's not writing it, but given that it's a Will Smith's Kid movie it's going to suck, you can just tell). Personally I am interested to see how much further he can go before he stops making money. Bad as it is, Last Airbender turned a profit (I can only assume through poor chumps who liked the series and did not know what was before them).

If Weta no longer has the rights to the movie then who should do the special effects for the movie? Industrial Light & Magic (Star Wars, Terminator 2, Artificial Intelligence: A.I., and Titanic) would be a perfect choice for the movie.

It would be interesting to say the least.

Weta. I remain unconvinced that any other effects studio could properly capture the physicality of the Evas - make them feel like living things and not like shiny robots. (Fuck, even the guys doing the CG for Rebuild can't do it.)

I saw the 8% rating on the Tomatometer, but I went to see the movie anyway. I loved the show too much and had become too invested in my excitement for the movie to quit over bad reviews. My curiousity had to be satasfied, and lo and behold, the movie was still garbage. Shyamalan really took the fanbase for a ride with that movie, because from a production standpoint the movie looked like it was going to be amazing, but it was killed by terrible writing, incompetent direction, and numb acting. As the film's writer and director, the responsibility for all three of those falls directly on Shayamalan's shoulders, which is evidenced by the fact that all the things not pertaining to those felt like like they belonged in a much better movie.

ILM could pull it off, but I think Weta is still the best choice. From a technical perspective ILM can't be beat, but I feel like Weta has more creativity and better concept artists, even if only ever so slightly. They are both at the top for slightly different reasons, and IMO either can be counted on to deliver results that impress.

I really hope that if and when this movie gets made though, Weta and Richard Taylor are still involved closely. Taylor seemed very excited about this project, and not long ago, when asked if he could do any project he wanted to right now, he said it would be Evangelion. He's a genius of artistic geekery, and I'm sure if he and Weta are in the mix then we'd get a movie that is at least very exciting to look at.

And as for Rebuild... I'd better not see any of THIS in LAEM:

I like my Evangelions without glow in the dark midriffs, thank you very much. It's a 300 foot tall monster-slaying cyborg, not Buzz Lightyear. :nono:

I still say Shymalamadingdong will never write a screenplay for a big studio movie ever again, and he may become the next Michael Cimino or Paul Verhoeven if his next few projects do not break even like The Village or Lady in the Water did not, and The Happening only made money IMO because of the unintentional humor throughout and because it did well outside North America

Winston Studio won't be a bad choice to work on the movie if Weta does not have the rights to the movie anymore. Winston might be dead, but his Studio is not since they work on "GI Joe" and the 4th Terminator movie over a year ago.

I don't know what 1000 A.E. is about but still Live action Eva is pretty in development hell now. I don't know if anyone except Anno can tame the beast that is Evangelion and put it into live action. Too many soul destroying themes, "fanservice", psuedo psychology and the protagonists are quite messed up.
