'Star Blazers' Film Planned With 'Valkyrie' Scribe Writing


Oscar-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie is likely to be hired to pen the big screen adaptation of the sci-fi TV series.

"Star Blazers" is going to hit big screen. Skydance Productions is currently negotiating a deal to turn the animated sci-fi TV series into a live-action feature film, Deadline Hollywood says. David Ellison, Christopher McQuarrie and Josh C. Kline are set to produce the upcoming film project.

The site further reports Christopher McQuarrie will be hired to pen the script for the movie adaptation. The Academy Award-winning writer has previously penned "The Way of the Gun" and "Valkyrie". He also provides the scripts for "The Wolverine" and Bryan Singer's "Jack the Giant Killer" which are going to enter production soon.

"Star Blazers" TV series, which was first aired in 1979, is based on Japanese anime series "Space Battleship Yamato". Both are described as "space opera" which involves "alien invasions, the near extinction of the human race, and a last dash journey through space to save the planet."
