posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Studio Khara announced on Thursday that it is producing a Shin Ultraman (New Ultraman) film for release in 2021. Shin Godzilla director Shinji Higuchi and his Higuchi-Gumi team are helming the project, and Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno is in charge of planning and scripts.
A draft of the script was completed on February 5, and Anno will focus on the project after completing Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||), Studio Khara's new Evangelion film. TOHO will distribute Shin Ultraman.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||) will open in theaters in Japan in June 2020.
Studio Khara had stated in March that dialogue recording had begun for Evangelion: 3.0+1.0. The first three films in the tetralogy, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance, and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, debuted in 2007, 2009, and 2012 respectively.
