February of last year, TOEI Animation green-lit the new computer-generated movie based on Masami Kuromada's mythological fantasy manga, Saint Seiya The Movie. The film had finally moved as the director and scriptwriter is confirmed!
Keiichi Satou, of Tiger & Bunny and Ashura fame, will direct the film, while Tomohiro Suzuki, who wrote six episodes of Tiger & Bunny, will be the scriptwriter.
The film is listed as the new "Masami Kurumada Project," and Kurumada, the original creator of the Saint Seiya mythological fantasy manga, is credited for the original story. This is a celebration to mark the 25th year anniversary of the original manga.
TOEI first hinted at the project during the Jump Festa event last December 2010, however, the preliminary website for the project still lists the film as "coming soon."
