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 ( 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.

Man I can't wait for this stuff to come together and being able to see some actual stuff from the movie.. Thank god I'm not too nitpicky on whether it'll all be accurate to the anime. As long as the story is going to be good I'm a happy camper (knowing Weta is involved more or less warrants some great visuals and effects I think).

Eagerly awaiting this!!

Well I am not sure if we should be thankful or not that Anno will not be the director

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Best news I've heard all day. I was so disappointed when I read on the Weta site that this one had been stuck on the back burner. I can't wait to see Unit 01 tearing through Tokyo 3 on the big screen. :buttrock:

That sentence just sunk all validity of this article, for me. I'm one of the most diehard eva fans out there, one who regularly rewatches the series, and actually likes the TV ending, but... come on, people. Is there a ( tracking all news for this movie yet? Yeah.

I liked evangelion up until the end of the series, then it just kinda made me sick, but thats cause im not too fond of gore. Anyway, I'm still looking forward to this movie though. Hopefully my stomach can handle it ^^;
