    I don't think it'll be too great tbh. I'm sure that if it is ever released they'll over look many important aspects of Neon Genesis in the attempt to "cram" as much action as they can, be it the full series or a segment of the series into a single film. To be more direct NGE is more about the themes in the story, like Shinji's mental/emotional sickness or disorder and how that affects him from fitting into society etc. I could see them making a massive cock up of that and transforming him into some kind of Angel killing brash American kid running around in Eva's with 2 hot chicks in a massive mess.

    I'm preparing to be disappointed. There's so many things which will go wrong and so little that will fit into place.

    Oh and finally the other thing I won't be able to stand is seeing 14 or 15 year olds on the street saying "Neon Genesis is cool" when actually they won't know the first thing about the series, how it was intended to be interpreted or any of the above. They'll just start liking the movies and lumping it with Transformers and any other live action movie. Call me cynical but it's going to be ****.

    I was rather excited until I realized one thing; having asian actors for most roles isn't going to appeal to most people they will be targeting, and having japanese names for european actors will be...lame to say the least. So in in other words good bye Shinji, Misato, Gendo and so on and so on. They could possibly keep names like Rey and Asuka (pushing it), but that will be just, well, fu*ked up. My opinion on it now is that its going to rape everything we love about Evangelion.
    For there nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so.

    .......to be honest any anime or manga going live action always some how dissapoint me really, so Im really hoping it will be good but i wont be surprised if it sucked and if it is good it might only appeal to hard core fans more than your casual movie watcher so you cant really complain if it gets bad rating from those movie critics who dont now jack about Evangelion just like how they bad mouth the Ghost in Shell movie saying its too japanese and would've of been better if dubbed in english. Personally i dont see why dub or sub should effect a movies rating sorry Im going off topic now LOL.

    Hey everyone, the actual company that did the Lord of the Rings CGI was Weta workshops, which has also done prototype sketches of the Neon Genesis Evangelion Live Action movie, mainly for ADV to make use of.

    But it seems to me that they might not be going ahead on this, but you have to think about it. Ever since Transformers has come out, this has set an example to those Hollywood studios that live action films can be done, (not very well mind) and that they might be thinking about other titles.

    Other titles have been said were Robotech Macross and Voltron, and re-continuing with the work, Halo.

    The Evangelion Live Action movie might get a go ahead, but as so many people here have pointed out, it's impossible to cram all the plot into a single movie. Apparently there were plans for Daniel Radcliffe playing the part of Shinji (shock! horror!).

    Here's the Wiki article on it:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neon_Ge...e-action_movie)

    And the Weta Workshop prototypes:
    http://www.wetaworkshop.co.nz/projec...m/neon_genesis

    Well, prepare to be dissapointed either way...

    whatever happens, I would be so keen to see what it'd turn out like...and shame on them if they don't make it work....it has the potential to be either real awesome or rubbish I think

    A small part of me would like to see how a live-action movie turns out.

    However, the other, bigger, SMARTER part knows it will most likely be utter crap, and an ugly joke that messes up everything that NGE is.

    The worst insult to injury will be all the ones that, most likely due to over-used action sequences, will love it. It will be horrible, simply, because unless they make atl 6 videos it will be crap.

    (26 30 min episodes will be ca. 12 1 hour videos, (Not counting EoE) if they make the individual videos ca. 3-4 hours long they MIGHT have a chance at capturing the story and plot.)

    A single movie, even if it's 5 hours long, can't possibly hope to capture even the most essential parts of the story.

    Not to mention the likelyhood of crappy cast, poor acting (in comparison to the personality and feel of the original characters) and gruesomely molested character-persona. (No western actor can possibly manage to portray Shinji's bucket-load of issues with his dad, his life, his insecurities, fear of the Eva's and so on, in any kind of way that honours the show. By not talking of Rei and Asuka... heck, they will prob. not even have their names correct, for reasons others have stated.)

    I really hope they don't ever make a live-action movie. They might as well stop right now, because it will be a gigantic failure.

    On a side-note, they will prob. end up managing to twist it so much that it won't flop totaly, sadly. Then the producers can have their money, it's all they care about anyways, and the reason they do make it.

    I mean, would any sane NGE fan really ask for a live-action movie? One would need at least 6 4-5 hour long films for the story. Japanese actors and settings. Real in-debht portrayal of the characters. A heavy focus on the story and iconography instead of just the action. One would need to keep the nude-scenes, there are not many, but they will be needed.

    In all the demands above, a live-action movie would most likely fail. If they could manage to get all of the above right though, it might actually be worth seeing. But, given the fact we have the anime/manga allready, it would be totaly needless as well...
    The things I possess are my life and mind.

    This whole live action evangelion movie thing, reminds me of that live action gundam G-Savior that everyone was raving about back in the day and guess what it sucked so badly that the original creator of gundam totally dissed it from the gundam universe. I can so see it coming for evangelion. Ok fanboys and fangirls get those threat letter ready.

    In response to some of the posts above, this is from a random internet article.
    Neon Genesis Evangelion concept art from Weta  .... You'll notice that some of the images have the names of the Japanime characters changed - e.g. Rei Ayanami = Ray, Asuka Langley = Kate Rose and Misato Katsuragi = Susan Whitnall.
    I don't know, fans of the original aren't going to be pleased with that (but they never are). I'm not, at least.

    But if they actually do manage to pull this off and get the Eva's up and running in realistic environments that would be pretty. Damn. Awesome.

    Aww man , personally I think it'll suck. It's Evangelion, it'd probably be rated M if they put the real stuff in. The actors IDK, I hope it's not the Harry Potter Dude.
    It's better in Anime form though, then since it's gonna be placed in american form it'll be lame, or I would say wack. But if it does make it to the big screen, maybe I'll give it a chance and watch it. I'm soo fricken stubborn I'd probably won't like it, even if it is good, and I like it deep inside my heart. That's how stubborn I am, if I do like it I'll probably won't tell anyone.

    Because no one makes a movie for the sake of making a movie. They make a movie to make money - and sadly that means our Eva Live Action is going to be dumbed down and censored to a sad state so it can make the most money. People are going to compare the target audience to Transformers because it didn't contain graphic violence and blood and did so well.

    I'd love to see an accurate portrayal. However we will not.

    I hope I didn't rain on anyones parade - and maybe by some fluke I will be proven wrong.

    I hope so. But I doubt it.

    Its not a good idea but then again it might be. Transformers The Movie was awesome and the pack all the robot action into it.

    but Tranformers didn't have mentally disturbed children fighting and dying in a blood bath.

    Eva is more than the robot action - which is what makes it epic.
    A GUNDAM movie could be successful on its robot carnage alone - but eva is deeper than that.

    we shall see.

    I totally agree.

    But the world doesn't "love" Transformers, or Spiderman, or any other live action remake. They love CG, hormone-laden teens, and a heavy metal soundtrack. Most of the people who told me I had to watch the Transformers movie were recommending it because of the female lead.

    My. GOD. NO!!!! She's smiling. That in itself should explain what kind of movie remake this is gonna be.

    I think not only will this movie suck like almost every other movie remake I have EVER seen, it will fail even more. It's probably one of the anime LEAST likely to convert well to live action! I'd say the ONLY simiarity to the original NGE will be big robots.

    O I see... but at least at my place all people love the live action transformer, including me too~

    the truth is, many people are close-minded idiots who don't even try to watch anime just because they're animated, so if they make a decent live action movie, the series will gain popularity. the truth is, 99% of live action movies end up being badly acted, badly directed and have even worse scripts than those stupid video game adaptations. the truth is also that almost every live action movie so far was made without having the director of the original anime supervising and it was made in japan (i think we all know how bad japanese actors and film directors are nowadays), but this one will be different. frankly, i don't know what to expect.

    I don't know, fans of the original aren't going to be pleased with that (but they never are). I'm not, at least.

    But if they actually do manage to pull this off and get the Eva's up and running in realistic environments that would be pretty. Damn. Awesome.
    OMForkingG! Susan WHOTHEFORK? KATE ROSE!!!! WTfork IS GOING ON HERE! That is ridiculous. Besides, Ray is a MAN'S NAME! My grandfather is named Ray! And seriously, I'm going to watch this, put it on a DVD, shi(r)t on it, then send it right back to the producer when it comes out. This guy must have a death wish. Besides, for an anime so deeply complex like NGE, this movie will NEVER CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF THE SHOW! There is a REASON why its ranking is so high on these lists:


    NUMBER ONE BEST ANIME:
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-arts-festival

    NUMBER 3 Top 10 Most Popular:
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ency...ings-anime.php

    Number 20 here (out of 100, so the same as 2 out of 10):
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-top-100-anime

    note that although they are from the same site, the CONTENT in them is fro different sources.

    I have a feeling this will be horrible, and when it is, i will spend extra for special hate mail stationary and stamps, plus japanese badluck/curse/charms. This was my FIRST, and FAVORITE ANIME OF ALL TIME! I WILL NOT SEE IT DEFAMED!

    btw: ShinjiXRei forever!

    My Fan Bars:



    Currently taking requests! YAY!

    If a live action goes through and hits theaters, I can see myself going, but like in Indiana Jone's: Raiders of The Lost Ark, if I feel like I will die, I just won't look.

    For this to be pulled off well, they wouldn't cast popular actors just to put names on posters. And they would have to be very well invested because they can't fit a whole story that fits together in an hour and a half so it will have to be a longer movie or series. I have a feeling that it could go well if they saved money by keeping the CG and action down and really give the film NGE's psychological horror that we all know and love, which would give it a suitable R rating. But that's where they are stuck:

    Make an awesome robot fighting movie that cashes in on the mass of young money spending generation
    or
    Make a film that has the action, but really blows you away with the mentality of matters and appeal to the more mature market, who when they see a movie don't usually go out and buy t shirts and memorabilia.

    Now this is something I've picked up a while ago when first hearing of this, but I read somewhere Robin Williams took interest in the role of Gendo and honestly, give him the glasses, some stubble and lower the tone of his voice and I could see it.


    I have the feeling in my gut that if they grab NGE by the insides and turn it inside out to make big bucks for blowing **** up, then Hollywood has lost all respect for its own industry as well as movie goers.
