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.

But the redemption arc of Zack Snyder’s original vision for Justice League presented Holkenborg with the opportunity to build upon what he had started many years ago, with new skills and tools – this time with no other cook in the kitchen but his director and friend. As pure as any film music expression has ever existed, Holkenborg’s nearly-four hour opus is as bombastic and singular as the film it compliments, and we are honored to present the premiere physical release of this staggering work of expression.”The limited edition set, which will be available for pre-order starting Wednesday at $200 at MondoShop.com, will feature all four hours of Holkenborg’s score pressed across seven 180 Gram vinyl discs, with a laser-etched B-Side on the final disc, all of which will be housed in a black, white and silver foil-stamped slip case.RELATED: Shazam!

    Mondo Unveils El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Vinyl Soundtrack!

    Mondo unveils El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie vinyl soundtrack! In partnership with Sony Masterworks, Alamo Drafthouse-owned Mondo Records has unveiled the premiere release of the vinyl soundtrack to El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, the acclaimed sequel film and epilogue to the AMC series of the same name. The vinyl artwork can be viewed in the gallery below!! RELATED: Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl! “There is something so perfectly analog about the world Vince Gilligan created for his characters in the Breaking Bad universe – so when the opportunity to premiere the exclusive release of the soundtrack to El Camino was presented to us, it felt almost as perfect as when we first heard that Vince had created an entire feature length epilogue to the greatest television show of all time… in secret!” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Creative Director of Music, said in a statement. “Dave Porter’s score is haunting and tense, and the needle-drops are simultaneously perfect peeks into the heads of the complex characters of Vince’s expanded universe, and incredibly insightful, deep-cut slices of the American music landscape.” With a thrilling, pulse-pounding score by Dave Porter, and nearly a dozen songs from the movie, this limited edition vinyl release is essential listening for fans of Vince Gilligan’s expanded crime saga. “Oh man, how exciting. The soundtrack to my first movie gets the kid-glove treatment by Mondo, one of the world’s coolest record companies,” Breaking Bad series creator and El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie writer and director Vince Gilligan, said in a statement. “The great Matt Talbot provides the album art. And since the musical brilliance and stellar taste of Dave Porter and Thomas Golubić cannot be contained within one mere flat circle of vinyl… they’ve made it a TWO-LP SET! Here’s hoping “groovy” is due for a comeback — because I can’t think of a better word to describe this.” RELATED: Mondo Unveils The Mandalorian: Season One Vinyl Soundtrack The album features nearly every needle drop from the film, including songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Jim White (Feat. Aimee Mann), Red Snapper and more, plus exclusive liner notes by composer Dave Porter and music supervisor Thomas Golubić. The soundtrack will be available for pre-order on Wednesday, October 14 at MondoShop.com.

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl!

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl! One of the best things about Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy (aside from the stunning visuals) was that amazing electronic score by Daft Punk — a tremendous bit of rhythmic beats and synthesizers that continues to resonate to this day. As such, Mondo is teaming up with Walt Disney Records to release the score on vinyl to commemorate the film’s 10-year anniversary. RELATED: Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings Series Resumes Production in New Zealand “When we go to visit the offices at Disney Music once a year, and every time we go the team is very, very lovely and they go, ‘So what’s your dream list?’” Mo Shafeek, Creative Director, Music at Austin-based Mondo told Collider. “Tron was always on that list, particularly for my partner Spencer. He’s a huge Daft Punk fan and a huge fan of that score. We would always throw things out. Like for me it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit. And we got to do that. Once we did that it was like, ‘Tron Legacy please!’” The timing was actually just right for the project to work. “We asked at the right time. We started this back in January. We were just asking about it for years and this time it came together organically. And now we get to be in on the anniversary.” For this new edition, Shafeek went “back to the source,” which means Tron: Legacy “is a direct repressing of what was released on the original vinyl album, which did feature a full collection of bonus tracks.” The Mondo edition of Tron: Legacy comes with artwork by British illustrator Matt Taylor. RELATED: Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Teaser Released for Netflix’s Original Horror… “The back cover has this spot-varnish where the dust has been wiped away, and the keyboard is glowing and it has the track-list, like the weird retro-future tech,” Shafeek said. “It had this whole story from the packaging perspective, where it’s a computer screen and you open it up and it’s this whole entire universe.” For more details on the soundtrack, visit the official Mondo site. Tron: Legacy Vinyl Edition Motion Picture Soundtrack will go on sale Wednesday at Noon CT/10 a.m. PT.
