Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts will be helming a live-action movie for Netflix based on Japan’s legendary mecha anime franchise, Gundam. The world’s biggest streamer announced the news in a press release shared today, which was short on plot details but did confirm that it’d be set in the Universal Century calendar era and feature the series’ iconic mobile suits. Vogt-Roberts is also developing a film based on Hideo Kojima’s hit stealth-action title, Metal Gear Solid.

The massively popular Mecha anime and science fiction media franchise is Sunrise’s multi-billion-dollar property that was created in 1979 and has spawned a multi-platform universe encompassing televised anime, manga, animated films, video games, plastic models, toys, and novels among other media. Gundam continues to dominate Bandai Namco’s earnings almost forty years after its inception.

    I think you are taking in the movie the wrong way. Or was it how much you had to drink to let it go?
