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.

    Call Of Duty: Warzone Player Wins Match Without Doing Anything

    Sometimes pacifism could possibly be the way to victory. That often isn’t the case in competitive shooters, but Reddit user Pinkys Brain somehow were able to net a solo victory in Call of Duty: Warzone without harming another individual. When this incredible feat was achieved, Pinkys_Brain pulled out a camera and recorded the post-match statistics to verify no kills were made, no damage was dealt.

    In the Reddit comments section, Pinkys_Brain said a pacifist run wasn’t necessarily the overall game plan. “I was waiting to fight people in the ultimate circle, plus they got stuck in the bottom of a hill and died in the gas.” Pinkys_Brain netted a score of 4,900 and were able to complete a contract on the way somehow.

    I am part of many Call of Duty: Warzone matches where I’ve hunkered down rather than engaged another player. As as it might seem cowardly, this strategy can result in higher placement – in the very best 10 sometimes, but these matches always drop to having to perform to a new circle and engage other players. We’ve all died in the gas or have observed other players perish inside it. That’s a area of the game: you need to excersice (or get lucky and begin within an area where in fact the final circle constriction will undoubtedly be).

    A few people in the Reddit chat believe a stim glitch might have been used to do this victory, however the scenario Pinkys_Brain outlines are possible and also have likely happened to other players before entirely, yet we just haven’t found out about these moments.

    Activision recently provided info on Season Two Reloaded updates which will be arriving at both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone. A slew of new maps, modes, and features are on the true way, giving players a lot of reasons ahead for more as well as perhaps try for a pacifist victory back!
