TL;DR: Netflix is set to make a live-action Gundam movie to be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
Gundam is about to get a live-action movie on Netflix. Legendary Pictures will be working with Sunrise to bring the popular mech anime to life.
The upcoming movie will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts who is best known for his work in the MonsterVerse film Kong: Skull Island.
Not much details are available as of yet regarding the movie. Legendary first announced its involvement in the live-action Gundam film way back in 2018. Apart from the announcement and the director, the studio is yet to cast anyone for it.
Gundam is a well-loved mecha anime from Sunrise. It already has a vast array of anime arcs, series, and movies Legendary can choose from.
Legendary Pictures is a great fit to make the upcoming Gundam movie. They already have a good mech movie under their belt in the Pacific Rim franchise. What’s more, they did good work with the MonsterVerse with kaiju films like the Godzilla movies, Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla vs. Kong.
