Vogt-Roberts has officially signed on to direct the studio’s first-ever live-action feature film version of Gundam for Netflix, which will be based on the universe of Sunrise’s iconic Japanese robot franchise.This marks Legendary and Netflix’s latest collaboration together, the two companies previously worked on films such as 2016’s Spectral and last year’s Enola Holmes as well as shows like Lost in Space and Pacific Rim: The Black. They are also currently working on the anime series adaptation of Skull Island and Tom Raider.RELATED: Netflix’s Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series Wraps Production!Plot details for the Netflix film are being kept under wraps but the original Gundam series is set in the Universal Century, an era in which humanity’s growing population has led people to emigrate to space colonies. Eventually, the people living in the colonies seek their autonomy and launch a war of independence against the people living on Earth. Through the tragedies and discord arising from this human conflict, not only the maturation of the main character but also the intentions of enemies and the surrounding people are sensitively depicted. The battles in the story, in which the characters pilot robots known as mobile suits, are wildly popular. The Gundam universe is replete with numerous storylines of love and conflict along with the popular Gundam battles, in which the characters operate robot suits called Mobile Suits.The live-action Gundam film will be penned by Brian K Vaughan. It will be produced by Vogt-Roberts with Vaughan set as executive producer. Legendary’s Cale Boyter will oversee the project along with the Sunrise creative team. The project was actually first announced in 2018 at the Anime Expo.RELATED: Sony & Netflix Ink First-Pay Streaming Licensing DealCreated by Hajime Yatate and Yoshiyuki Tomino, the franchise first started in 1979 with the TV series titled Mobile Suit Gundam. The massively popular Mecha anime and science fiction media franchise is Sunrise’s multi-billion-dollar property that has spawned a multi-platform universe encompassing televised anime, manga, animated films, video games, plastic models, toys, and novels among other media. Gundam continues to dominate Bandai Namco’s earnings almost forty years after its inception.

    Thyme Flies in a New Atomicrops Update

    Welcome back to the irradiated stompin’ grounds, y’all!

    Did you think you knew all there was to mutant-crop tendin’? Well, we’re here to tell you city-slickers that there’s a lot more than meets the eye with a new content update to Atomicrops – Thyme Flies! All the frantic-farming and post-apocalyptic action is getting ready to hit Xbox One with barrels-loaded and fertilizer… err… pretty stinky at this point, tbh.

    Heading to town just in time for the harvest season are brand-new weapons, upgrades, and two of the hardest-working farmhands to ever step onto the cracked earth of your irradiated homestead!

    Atomicrops - Thyme Flies

    Dandelion just flew in and boy are their arms tired. Well, that’s not quite right as they’ve got themselves wings that they’ve put to good use! Dandelion’s fly ability allows them to bypass bridges to access biomes that would otherwise be inaccessible from day one.

    Atomicrops - Thyme Flies

    Just in time (hooboy, we’re never going to get sick of that one!) arrives Thyme and their porky pig-pal. Thyme’s whole schtick is a little different from the norm – Days drag on longer with them around, giving you more precious, additional time with your crop-babies. A word of caution: as soon as Thyme takes a hit, your day will suddenly shorten right up! Stay out of the blast zone to allow yourself extra breathing-room to grow crops, whoop butts, and explore the area with your pig companion.

    Atomicrops - Thyme Flies

    Add in a host of new weapons (did we mention the word “Flamethrower”?), a shiny new Tunneler Tractor to help you get back to your garden in a flash, and a smorgasbord of new-fangled upgrades and you got yourself a hoedown! The free Thyme Flies patch is live now on Xbox One for everyone to muss about with! For full notes on the additions to Atomicrops, visit atomicrops.com.
