The upcoming Hollywood live-action film for Gundam has just signed on comic book creator Brian K Vaughan to handle the movie’s screenplay, entertainment news website Deadline reports. Vaughan is best known for the Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina comic book series, and has been praised by Wired as “the greatest comic book visionary of the last five years”. He also served as a writer, story editor, and producer for seasons three to five of the US television series Lost. He is also credited for writing for some high-profile Marvel characters such as Spider Man and Captain America. Besides penning the screenplay, Vaughan will also serve as the executive producer of the Gundam Hollywood film.
The Hollywood live-action adaptation of the popular Japanese mecha icon will be helmed by Legendary Pictures’ Cale Boyter, who also produced the Pokemon: Detective Pikachu movie. Boyter will be supervising the film together with Sunrise’s creative team.
