February 25, 2006 - The last we heard, the live action adaptation of the classic anime Neon Genesis Evangelion had been lowered on the Hollywood priority list, but new details surfaced today at the New York Comic-Con. At the ADV Films morning panel discussion, ADR Director Matt Greenfield enlightened the audience on recent developments.
Although production on the film (http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/691/691631p1.html#) has not yet started, a rough draft of the script has been vetted through Gainax, the company responsible for the original anime. In conjunction with Gainax and Weta (the effects company responsible for the Lord of the Rings trilogy and King Kong), ADV is moving ahead with plans to sign one of three A-list directors, and believe they are close to a deal.
Further, Weta representatives told ADV that there is more buzz surrounding Eva than any of the Lord of the Rings pictures. Stay tuned to IGN FilmForce for more updates as they become available.
