The Neon Genesis Evangelion live action Hollywood adaptation could finally be in the works right now after Michael Bay is reportedly stepping down as the director of Transformers 5!
In an interview with USA Today, Michael Bay said he believes he'll hand directing duties on Transformers 5 over to someone else so he can work on other projects:
"There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make. I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles."
What could this "lot of stories to tell" mean? Could his statement mean that along with his planned documentary work, he is going to direct the Neon Genesis Evangelion live action Hollywood adaptation?
One of the most popular mecha animes of all-time, Neon Genesis Evangelion is probably going to have a live action adaptation and Michael Bay allegedly is putting his hat into the ring to be the director of the film.
Yes, you've read that right. The Neon Genesis Evangelion live action hollywood adaptation is probably going to be directed by Michael Bay.
According to the reports of the Flickering Myth, Michael Bay was asked by journalists if he wants to direct any other franchises after his stint with Transformers and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Michael Bay then responded by saying "I don't know if you are familiar with 'Evangelion' but that's one movie that I want to direct".
When asked if Michael Bay is working on the Neon Genesis Evangelion live action movie right now, he just smiled at the journalist who asked him that question.
