THE IDEA of a live-action Evangelion has divided many fans. Some would love to see their favourite anime series come to the big screen in all its glory, while others feel that a live-action film couldn’t possibly live up to the original, especially with Bay behind the wheel.
Rumours began to circulate after an interview with a Korean gossip magazine Bay was quoted: “I don’t know if you are familiar with ‘Evangelion’ but that’s one movie that I want to direct.”
With these rumours growing Bay’s official social media presence decided to put an end to any rumours:
“#Evangelion rumor going around is not true.”
Well that’s certainly clear. Who knows, perhaps another director may pick it one day. Here’s looking at you Del Toro.
