If they pull it off, this could be awesome

But on the other hand, a live-action Star Blazers could go spectacularly wrong. True Grit was good, but an adaptation of a Western novel is about as far as you can get from an adaptation of a dubbed anime.

On the other hand, if it actually gets off the ground, and they don’t try to make it all things to all people, it could make for a good summer action movie; if nothing else, they could use it to build interest for the recent Japanese live-action Space Battleship Yamato movie.

Put me down as skeptical (the list of (Western) live-action anime adaptations in the works is growing ever longer, but few have gotten out of development hell (Akira, Full Metal Panic, Voltron, etc.)), but cautiously optimistic.
