According to a report from kdramastars.com, Director Michael Bay (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) has expressed interest in taking the helm of a possible live action Evangelion movie.
Bay was recently questioned by journalists if he had any interest in directing a movie based on other popular franchises after his stints with Transformers and TMNT, to which Bay replied “I don’t know if you are familiar with ‘Evangelion’ but that’s one movie that I want to direct”.
When asked if he may already be involved with filming a live action Evangelion movie, Bay simply smiled at the journalist who asked him.
Since then, there has been speculation as to whether such a project will, or may already exist. We here at rebuildofevangelion.org will do our best to keep you updated on any new info we turn up.
We here at rebuildofevangelion.org would like to thank everyone who came to our panels at Anime Central 2014. We had a great time talking about Evangelion with all the wonderful fans. We got to experience a lot of good cosplays, discuss some new viewpoints, and even learned some new things about Evangelion.
We also would like to congratulate the winners of the t-shirt raffle at our “Revolution of Evangelion” panel. Wear those shirts proudly everyone! And to those who didn’t win, or were asking about ordering one, we are working on getting more shirts made up and figuring out a merchandise section for the site, as well as getting a payment system set up. So please be patient. If you have any questions regarding the shirts or other site merchandise, please e-mail General_Iowa at GeneralIowa@outlook.com.
And lastly, we would like to send an extra big thanks to everyone who attended the “What Did Gendo Say?” and “Garden of Eva” panels that were hosted by our very own Actually_Asuka. Those were her first ever panels and you guys helped make them a rounding success. We here at the site are very proud of all the effort and work that Actually_Asuka put into her panels and hope to see her do even more in the future.
So, once again, thanks to everyone who attended! We will be seeing you again at Anime Midwest and Anime Iowa! So be sure to check us out!
