    Re: Evangelion Live Action in the works??!!

    Oh crap!

    Don't get me wrong I love the animation series. It is unique because it broke the traditions of animation. I just don't think it'll work as a live action movie, no matter if it will be a direct rip-off or
    done in totally different styles.

    Put it this way: A 14-year-old loser kid as an animation character is different from one played by a real actor. I don't think I really wanna see the latter: kinda remind me of myself...

    Live Action Eva Designs

    This is a page from the current Japanese Issue of Newtype. The pictures are by a designer at Weta Workshop. Weta is working with ADV and Gainax to produce a live action Evangelion.

    If they do it right it could be awesome, however Id like to know how they plan to make the Eva story fit into 1 movie Maybe if they created a trilogy Then art 1 could be an Intro and the main kid getting used to the Eva and 1 big fight at the end against 1 of the Angels. Number 2 could have inner struggles between eva pilots and more Angels. Then Number 3 could be the big finaly with Lotsa Uber Angels and Mass Killings, Blood Guts and Mega Eva 01. I like! but alas I have got carried away with the whole idea, Ill be quiet now.....

    Gainax has announced on their Evangelion webpage that, following the recent announcement of the live action Evangelion movie, Gainax will be making another big announcement in the later summer. They unfortunately aren't giving any clues as to what sort of announcement.

    The movie has a budget of $100 million and will be a retelling of the story. The July issue of Newtype USA should apparently contain a lot of information about the film.

    More pictures of each charactor and evas & angels. The names have been changed to english as well. A different yet minor change.

    Rei = Ray
    Asuka = Kate Rose
    Misato = ????

    Less news like this, and more production news!!!

    Here is a new art design on a possible Eva or angel. Unknown so far

    http://www.madcaps.pwp.blueyonder.co.../newtypejp.jpg

    And misato's name will be changed to Susan. A positive plus i think. As with the new names especially with Kate Rose AKA Asuka, Kate Rose is also the concept art design for the plug suits used by the children. Could the new names of the charactors be linked to their design?

    Could it be Unit 01 gone berserk?...

    And Misato = Susan... come on! Can't they think of a even plainer name?
