Reportedly a script has been completed by Marco Ramirez (showrunner on Marvel’s TV series ‘Daredevil’), and Leonardo DiCaprio - once cited as a potential star - is on board as producer. While Snieder says there is “no word on whether Justin Lin wants to do the movie,” it is noted that the director (also responsible for ‘Fast & Furious’ 3 to 6) is attached to another Warner Bros property, ‘Space Jam 2,’ so he’s clearly held in good stead at the studio. The 1988 animated movie from director Katsuhiro Otomo (adapted from his own Manga series) has long been one of the most highly regarded and influential anime movies.

After being slapped with a lawsuit from ‘Star Trek’ rights owners CBS & Paramount, the fan film ‘Axanar’ has found an unlikely supporter – ‘Star Trek Beyond’ director, Justin Lin. “Axanar takes place 21 years before the events of ‘Where no Man Has Gone Before’, the first Kirk episode of the original Star Trek,” explains the official website.
