Genndy Tartakovsky Opens Up About A Live-Action SAMURAI JACK Movie
The famed animator who created the highly successful animated series Samurai Jack, tells Collider about the future of everyone's favorite animated samurai, hinting at a possible live-action film. Get the details after the jump.
The man behind successful animated shows such as Samurai Jack, Dexter's Laboratory, and Star Wars: Clone Wars, spoke to Collider about what it would take to see a live-action Samurai Jack hit the big screen, while promoting his latest film Hotel Transylvania. Apparently the project has been stuck in development hell ever since it was announced to be in pre-production back in 2009. See what the animator has to say about the future of the famous character below.
It’s still around. Every year, somebody new picks it up who tries to push it through. I feel like, with Jack, it’s a funny curse. People like it for A, B and C, but as soon as they want to make it, they say, “Well, we can’t do A, B and C.” But, those are the key ingredients that make it successful. Once somebody comes along and just says, “I want to make it for what it is,” then it will get made. But right now, every time we try to run it up the flagpole, it never sticks.
Everyone has been anxious to see Samurai Jack hit the big screen and capture the excitement and action that the show held. Maybe he'll get his chance to shine again, but in he meantime we can only hope. Sound off with your thoughts below in the usual place.
