A while back, this trailer came out.
It’s a small, really uninformative trailer for a live action Gaiking movie to be released in 2012. Not a lot of other news came out of that, at least that didn’t pass over my head, and because the trailer was so obtuse, I just let it go. Looks like that was just me, though, because some new news from AnimeAnime.jp has come down the pipe about it being produced as a Hollywood movie. Not just by anyone either.
According to the article, it’s going to be produced by none other than Gale Anne Hurd. Hurd was producer of many famous movies such as The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss and is the current producer of The Walking Dead. Now she’s going to work on Gaiking.
It’s quite a jump. That trailer came out a few years ago, and I just assumed it fizzled without me hearing about it. Now it’s got a real Hollywood producer that has produced good things attached to the project. This might end up being all right.
