Christopher McQuarrie Hired To Write Star Blazers

Deadline reports that Skydance Productions has hired Christopher McQuarrie (Usual Suspects) to help adapt the anime series Star Blazers into a movie. There is currently a Japanese live-action film based on the series titled Space Battleship Yamato which has been very successful. So it makes sense to move forward with an English version.

The budding production company is aligned with Paramount Pictures similar to the relationship of Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Their current projects include True Grit and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. McQuarrie has recently moved into writing genre based films working on The Wolverine for Darren Aronofsky and Jack The Giant Killer for Bryan Singer. He was also an uncredited writer on the first X-Men film.
