In another interesting tidbit, 411mania offered the following as part of their interview with Dave Wilkins (of Splatterhouse game fame):
Jeffrey Harris: You did concept art for the new feature Gatchaman movie. Recently a new trailer came online for the movie. Have you seen this new trailer yet?
Dave Wilkins: I've seen the trailer.
Jeffrey Harris: So . . . is this movie actually going to come out? What is going on?
Dave Wilkins: It's been up and down. I'm not really sure. I really hope it does because a lot of super talented guys worked on it . . . great, great guys put a lot of great work in there and just being a Gatchaman fan I hope it does.
Jeffrey Harris: When you were conceptualizing those characters, was your vision of Berg Katse the Berg Katse?
Dave Wilkins: Yeah and that's exactly what we called him. It wasn't Galactor. It was the original.
Jeffrey Harris: So was it going to be the transsexual, gender-bending Katse? In the original animation he was both a man and a woman.
Dave Wilkins: Right. He was pretty hardcore. In my version, he's more monstrous and alien than anything. But I don't know how he ended up.
