Ive looked around this forum and honest to dead baby jesus i couldnt find a thread about this movie, so i thought id start one up, a bunch of lil facts about it.

IT HAS NOT YET BEEN GREEN-LIT(17/11/06)

* Matt Greenfield says that Weta(same guys who did Lord Of The Rings) approached ADV about approaching Gainax to do a live action Eva movie.
* Three "A List" directors that are also fans of Evangelion approached ADV about the project, not the other way around.
* Greenfield talks about getting their pitch package together and that "the first thing is Robin Williams talking about Evangelion", who is apparently a big Evangelion fan, and the appearance of the Mass Production Eva toy in One Hour Photo is entirely his doing.
* Celebrities have been inquiring directly to ADV about being involved in Live Action Evangelion.
* The director to be signed will most likely be the first to have room in their schedule.
* Greenfield acknowledges the uncertainty of the final product due to the nature of film making being driven by the director.
* The slug script was written by a well known writer who has written several well known sci-fi movies. The slug script will be re-written to fit the tastes and vision of the director selected.
* Greenfield acknowledges that the children will most likely be age appropriate. The kids will be picked and then the adults will be cast to work well with the children.
* Tiffany Grant asserts that Weta gets 20 times more email about Evangelion than Lord of the Rings.
* Greenfield says a director will most likely be signed by the end of the year.
* Greenfield says they don't want to make it for profit, but because they want to do it, and they want to do it right, and do it justice in the same way that Lord of the Rings did.
* About Rei Ayanami's role (not mentioned above) , is rumoured that it will be Vanessa Anne Hudgens.
* Weta Workshop customer service manager Darren Reddiex stated "Currently this project hasn't been greenlit. We ourselves are very hopeful the project will go ahead as, given the opportunity, we'd love to continue working on it ourselves." when responding to a fan's email.

My own Thoughts: well call me crazy or a moron, but id really like to see Robin Williams play Commander Ikari, or his right hand man(how could i forget the name ),
and that the whole Nerv is made up of all sorts of races, from asian-middle european-eastern- etc it would be cool i think(well as long as they dont make it too bright that they squeeze in every single ethnic origin, that would just look stupid)
I REEAALLY CANT WAIT UNTIL IT GETS RELEASED......

I don't really care if there is because I'm willing to bet that this one has 100% more content than the other.

I don't think I can see Robin Williams as any anime character. To tell you the truth. I can't see anyone portraying anyone in NGE. Then again, I'm not for the whole live-action thingy. That's my opinion!

What id really like to see in the movie,
TRILOGY FTW!
The first movie would end with Asuka being introduced, and the second would start
with the Shinji-Asuka dual battle, and as it progresses the beginning credits roll, after that they explain whats happend in the mean time, and it ends with the 15th Eva being killed, then ofc the third part would be End Of Evangelion, or if by then its been released, End of evangelion+ Rebuild of evangelion(will it be released like next year or something, when exactly is Rebuild gonna air)
Anyway i really hope that Daniel Radcliff WILL NOT BE MADE into Shinji, since he just doesent fit it, neighter do i have much respect for his acting abilitys(no offense).
But i could see Hermione playing Asuka if she could play the part, i mean she looks almost exactly like Asuka, Middle-European, Redhead, Young.... If she could have that Crazy look in her eyes like Asuka sometimes has then she could pull it off, on the other hand i cant see anyone playing Misato.... will be just some random actor in my mind...

K youre thoughts?
AOH

It was a fan trailer. There is a link on this forum. It was a mix of several movies put together.

That was a pretty good fan trailer. There is ALOT of content to cram into an Eva movie. I'm concerned it will either feell like they skipped over way to much, or that it will feel too hurried.

I shudder to think what they will do with casting. Robin Williams as Gendo? I could actually see that working, thoug he wouldn't be my first choice. I think a cameo would be cool as hell though. After seeing that fan trailer, I could think of that little girl who played Hermione in the HP movies as doing a decent Asuka. I think Rei should be a japanese actress with blue hair - period, end of discussion. She was the character used to represent Eva more than any other. To the anime world she is damned near a holy sacred (all be it creepy) vessel. Misato should be a japanese actress as well, but I can live it with it if she's not.

And for the love of all that's holy don't forget Penpen!!!!

I am glad to hear that it looks like they're trying to movie right and there is enough interest (both in and outside of hollywood) in it to get it greenlit. It'll probably be ages before it hits the screens.
