Bloody Disgusting Gatchaman Movie News

BloodyDisgusting.com has posted that Kevin Munroe has been signed on to direct the film adaptation of Dylan Dog, a horror comic. Apparently, this means he's no longer holding the reins of the Imagi Gatchaman film. Imagi hasn't posted any official news about this, but the Gatchaman portion of Imagi's web site has eliminated the "Staff" section that contained Munroe's name. Read the blogpost here:

First, Paul Dini was slated to work on the project, but then the Gatchaman section disappeared from his forum. Now Kevin Munroe is leaving. I'd had high hopes after meeting him, hearing his plans and seeing his work with TMNT.

Could this mean that the Gatchaman project is being reimagined, or is it slated for cancellation? I've got a bad feeling about this.

There's a completely new team at the helm. The film is delayed because of the change but still slated for production and moving forward. There will be an official announcement eventually, stay tuned.

Saw this on a concept artist's blog:

Sounds like the new team is making a kid-friendly version of Gatchaman now. Maybe that was the reason the director and writer left. Didn't they say they wanted to make it a hard PG13? That production art didn't look very kiddie.
