The official Japanese website of the Production I.G. anime company (Blood: The Last Vampire, xxxHOLiC, Kill Bill Chapter 3: The Origin of O-Ren) has posted a job listing for computer graphics artists and engineers who will work on a unspecified "3D movie project." The company's website has already solicited traditional animators for new positions on a family-oriented modern fantasy film by director Hiroyuki Okiura (Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade). I.G has not specified whether these two postings are for different projects, or the same one.
In July, Production I.G's parent company IG Port released materials with its latest financial report that stated I.G's plans to produce four theatrical works in the future. While I.G's recent theatrical projects, such as Oshii's Ghost in the Shell sequel Innocence and The Sky Crawlers, have included 3D animation, the company has not described these earlier projects as "3D movie projects."
