Anime News Network has reported that AIC has signed an agreement with Cubix International to produce a live action version of Bubblegum Crisis based on the original OVA's. They are aiming for a 2011 release. Apparently AIC is very interested in collaberating with the shows original staff members Kenichi Sonada and Shinji Aramaki! AIC Agrees to Live-Action Bubblegum Crisis Proposal (Updated) - Anime News Network There is also a small pre-production image posted on Cubix's site Pre-Production Bubblegum Crisis Film Image Posted - Anime News Network The original Bubblegum Crisis is one of my favourite series - and to hear that both Sonada and Aramaki might be involved has made me very excited about it. It shows that AIC want to keep the movie in tone with the original, which is a great first step. However, I'm a bit worried that Sonada will refuse again like he did with Tokyo 2040 (He refused to work on it because of the way he was treated by AIC on the original series)Guess we can only wait and see. There is also mention of a new BGC anime in the works too. The Bubblegum Crisis revival has begun!
