On Tuesday (actually, I think it was a while before that), Funimation announced the Director for Evangelion 1.0: You Are [Not] Alone, along with the cast for the voices.
Mike McFarland will be directing the movie. He was the ADR director for Fullmetal Alchemist (plus the movie and the OVAs) and has been involved in (to my knowledge) Dragonball...everything (since he does the voice of Master Roshi and some others). He is also involved (from ADR director to Line script) with almost every anime you would see on the Funimation channel (Solty Rei, Suzuka, Ouran, Peach Girl, Basilisk, etc).
When it comes to the voices, so far, only two voices have been kept the same from the original: Spike Spencer for Shinji Ikari and Allison Keith for Misato Katsuragi. John Swasey will be doing Gendo Ikari again, but his voice was for the director's cut, not the original (the same applies for Greg Ayers for Kaworu). All the other characters have been given new (and more than obvious Funimation) voices. For example, Ritsuko Asagi will now be voiced by Colleen Clinkinbeard (Riza Hawkeye, Fullmetal Alchemist; Yuko Ichibara, XXXHolic). I am not surprised.
What do you guys think?
