Imagi Animation Studios has announced Paul Dini is penning the CG-animated movie Gatchaman.

“The original series was one of the classics of early anime, and the film will be very true to the Japanese source material,” said Dini. “As a studio, Imagi is constantly breaking the boundaries of animated adventure. Not only are their action sequences amazing, but their characters are driven, complex and play for life-or-death stakes. It’s a great environment for a writer with a rather dark take on animation.”

Everyone knows I love Dini’s work, I just hope his writing duties on other projects won’t cause mmore delays with Detective Comics.

Gatchaman is scheduled for a 2009 release.

  1. Jesus H. Christ! I always loved that series, it was called “Fuerza G” G Force in Mexico.
    When I heard the rumor that there will be a movie of them I becomed mad with the information, until I heard that Kevin Munro, the guy who made the las TMNT movie an 80 minutes piece of crap, but with good ol’ Dini writing it, the movie will be the next summer movie!
