Would you really want one? It was probably be ass and they would want to launch a franchise of sequels.

I like the Japanese live action one.

No I doubt I'd like the result of the American version. Though I didn't hate Star Blazers.

When Disney had the rights, they wanted to make it the USS Arizona. Ugh.

I hated the ending of the Japanese live-action one.

The ending was a little dumb. Like Star Trek movie dumb.

Well that and they really didn't get into the Gamilas much. They were much more well-rounded in the series.

The movie kind of cut off the possibilities of future movies resembling the rest of the animated Yamato saga.

It looks like the U.S. live-action version of Yamato may still be alive.



Source: McQuarrie On "Mission Impossible 5" & Beyond

In a rountable interview with Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, X-Men, The Wolverine), the screenwriter noted that Star Blazers may be getting close to winning in the rights negotiation battle.

 

… there’s one last piece in the chain that needs to be worked out and when that’s done I would immediately be able to start writing that.

So sort of close, yet far. But not dead. Yet.

Star Blazers is the 1979 adaptation of the 1974 Space Battleship Yamato (??????? Uch? Senkan Yamato) anime. The story revolves around the intrepid crew of the Yamato (in Star Blazers, The Argo) to retrieve a device to save the Earth which will die in a year. The Yamato is a repurposed World War II Japanese battleship filled with experimental technoliges. Not only are they on a deadline, they are also being pursued by the deadly Gamilas (Gamilons).

UPDATE 10-30-13

Deadline is reporting that Christopher McQuarrie is indeed set to write and direct the Star Blazers movie. So this ship is slowing launching from the docks... We'll keep an eye out for more.

Well I think that a quite a few veterans groups and all-around patriots, ignorant of film's anime origins, might get a little miffed over using a Japanese WWII battleship.
