Big-screen battle for "Star Blazers"

 

By Borys KitMon Apr 24, 6:19 AM ET

 

The classic Japanese anime "Star Blazers" is being developed as a live-action Hollywood feature.

 

Known for its epic imagery and themes of brave sacrifice and respect for heroes lost in the line of duty, "Star Blazers" is the U.S. name for 1970s Japanese anime TV series "Space Battleship Yamato." It comprised three television series, five animated features and a host of merchandise. "Star Blazers" aired Stateside in the early 1980s.

 

The story is set in the 22nd century after an alien attack on Earth has forced survivors to live in underground cities. After a message arrives from a distant planet promising a cure for the proliferating surface radiation, Earth's last vestige of hope rests on the crew of a powerful yet untested spaceship, which must reach the purported new ally and return home before mankind ceases to exist. A live-action adaptation was set up at Walt Disney Studios in the 1990s.

 

A search for a writer to pen the adaptation is under way. The project is being produced by production/management concern Benderspink in partnership with producer Josh C. Kline, the longtime rights holder of "Star Blazers."

I always got starblazers and battle of the planets mixed up. The starblazer enemies always made the same fatal mistake again and again getting in front of the big f)))ing gun.
