Mamoru Oshii directing Tetsujin 28-go movie

The director of Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, and Avalon announced his plans to direct a film based on Tetsujin 28-go (Gigantor) last Friday.  Oshii directed a stage play based on the seminal Giant Robot story earlier this year, and of course the Kobe Tetsujin project was completed in early October.  No word on whether or not the film will be animated or live-action, or whether this has anything to do with Imagi Studios’ T-28 project, which looks like another action-packed but unfortunately westernized remake ala Astro Boy.  In somewhat related news, the blu-ray/dvd release for the CG animated robot adventure 9 is now in stores.
