Speed Racer Returns As Anime Series?

Iconic 1960s anime series “Speed Racer,” which the Wachowski’s translated into a 2008 3D live-action film, may be returning to television.

Anime News Network reports that franchise owners Tatsunoko Production have confirmed that they’re intending to relaunch the franchise with a new television project.

However, further specific details about the reboot and its format or potential premiere date aren’t available at this time. The property rights for “Speed Racer” have been disputed in recent years with complete control of the property now in Tatsunoko’s hands.
