Gamera 3D in the works
Looks like Godzilla isn’t the only giant Japanese monster getting a new film, as Twitch is reporting that Gamera, the flying giant turtle made as a rival from Daiei Studios to Toho in the 1960s, is getting a new film. Advanced Audiovisual Productions is looking to create a short film in 3D for – get this – IMAX screens just in time for an April 2012 date to coincide with Legendary Pictures’ reboot for an American Godzilla.
Gamera 3D is scheduled to be in 70mm and run 40 minutes for Kadokawa Pictures. Gamera has been getting its films in some great new reissues from Shout! Factory and has a kaiju fan, this is really, really awesome. Oh, and the production company, Advanced Audiovisual Productions, is owned by Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster’sdirector, Yoshimitsu Banno!
Better yet, is Gamera will be fighting an all-new monster called Namagon!!
Can’t wait and we hope to hear more soon.
