A consortium of companies from six different countries plans to produce a $30 million live action feature film based on anime series Bubblegum Crisis, according to Screen Daily and Hollywood Reporter. The English language film is planned for release in 2012.

The six companies involved are from Singapore (Axxis Interntional), Japan (Anime International Company), Australia (Arclight Films)l, Canada (Wizzfilms), China (Infotainment China Media Co.), and the UK (Latec International). Numerous international co-production treaties will come into play.

The series on which the film will be based was eight OAVs, ranging from 26 to 50 minutes, from the late 80s. It was released in the U.S. by Animeigo.

Dark Horse released a four-shot comic miniseries and trade paperback collection by Adam Warren based on the property; they’re out of print.

Yet another anime based movie in the works... :look:

      The Disney princess part at the end is great. I loved the first movie.

      Looks like aliens are terraforming the planet and making monsters at the same time, which is a combination of awesome to me.
      Now for a brief rant.. The tv commercials were better than this trailer. In the commercials it looks like she is the pro going in to figure out wtf is going on, but in the trailer she's only going in to save her husband because Hollywood still doesn't think a female character can actually have professional motivation to do shit on their own without attaching a man to the woman's goals.

      I'm glad Wasp will finally get some screen time, Marvel needs more strong females in their movies.

      We'll have to wait until 2018 for the new anime series.

      It looks promising and a couple of the scenes look like they were taken right out of the game. Alicia Vikander looks like Lara Croft in that outfit, but shes a very small woman (height and muscle) in comparison to Lara Croft in the video game. I hope her physical performance is believable considering how many men she'll have to kill. To hell with the double guns tho. I'd rather see her using only the bow and climbing axe the entire movie.. and maybe an assault rifle. lol.
