Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (film)
Gatchaman is the upcoming CGI movie based on the anime series of the same name (nostalgia indeed ahhhh) scheduled to be completed in near future (some say 2009, some say 2010) by Imagi Animation Studios. Kevin Munroe (TMNT) is scheduled to write and direct with Lynne Southerland (co-director of Mulan 2) as producer.
Some information taken from an interview with Kevin Munroe back on July 19, 2006, and statements coming from Imagi Animation Studios' Founder and Co-CEO Francis Kao:
* The movie will focus on foundation of the team and how the members meet each other.
* The movie will focus on solely Gatchaman universe.
* A PG-13 rating is possible since it will have a dark tone, with themes of violence. Apparently the production is very faithful to Japanese source with little twist here and there to spice it up. Obvious demographic on older fans who possesses buying power now.
