Star Blazers to Go Hollywood

Could we be seeing a Hollywood-produced Star Blazers live-action film in foreseeable future? Well, it’s not 100% official just yet. Skydance Productions are reportedly in the process of negotiating the license for the series. If some of you recall,  Japan recently produced a live-action adaptation of their own that performed pretty well, so I imagine there’s probably some pressure to make sure the Hollywood adaptation will at least hold a candle to that. It probably won’t be a problem, seeing as they plan on hiring Christopher McQuarrie to write the script — he’s also working on the upcoming Wolverine “sequel.”

Personally, I’m excited to see what Skydance has planned for us. They’re a relatively new name as far as production houses are concerned, but True Grit was a hit at the box office and garnered mostly positive reviews. Let’s just hope they can deliver. They’re also currently working on the next Mission Impossible, so at least they’ve earned someone’s trust. Who knows what kind of surprises they may have in store for us — I have my fingers crossed for a Harlock cameo.
