Christopher McQuarrie to Direct Live-Action Star Blazers Film

Planet Earth is counting down its final days, suffering from the deadly radiation of Gamilon Planet Bombs. From the depths of space, a message of hope arrives from Queen Starsha of Iscandar, who offers the Cosmo DNA that can cleanse Earth of its radioactive pollution and save humanity. But Iscandar is 148,000 light years away, farther than any human has ever traveled.

McQuarrie is also signed on to direct the upcoming fifth Mission: Impossbile film for Paramount. A release date has not been set for either film.
