    Will believe it when I see it.

    I don't expect a Hollywood version to have the depth or complexity of the best stories that have come out of the franchise. I don't think it will play very well with US audiences as well.

    I have a bad feeling about this.

    Oh great, just what we need, another anime-turned live action film. First Dragon Ball Evolution, then that Ghost in the Shell movie and now this? Next thing you know, there's going to be a live-action Naruto adaptation!

    Weren't there those proposed live action Cowboy Bebop, Sword Art Online, and One Piece adaptations that never happened? 80% of all "announced" live action adaptations never get made and the other 20% includes Netlix Death Note.

    Development means they are developing them basically. However, Legendary does seem to have deep pockets to finance their own stuff these days.

    Doesn't seem there's much movement on any of them. But they are still in their early development/pre-production phases.

    "Pre-production" can last a very long time, decades in fact. The American Bebop film was in "pre-production" for many years before its cancellation. That is why being in pre-production doesn't mean squat as to whether it will get made or not.

    True, but maybe with Legendary having some experience with giant robot movies like Pacific Rim, this might have a chance of being made.

    I've got news for you ...

    Given the commercial failures of those movies, maybe not. The first one was barely saved by its Chinese box office. The sequel was an abject flop everywhere.
