Universal Developing Film Based on Anime Vexille

Despite live action anime films seldom making it to theaters, Variety is reporting that Universal is developing a live-action remake of the hit anime Vexille. “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” writer Evan Spiliotopoulos is penning the first draft of the screenplay. 

The original film is described as follows: 

Japan, 2077: A female agent named Vexille is dispatched to Tokyo to investigate whether Japanese are developing robotic technology, which has been banned by the U.N. due to its potential threat to humankind.
