Universal Plans “Vexille” Anime Remake

Universal has acquired the remake rights to Sori Fumihiko’s 2007 anime feature “Vexille”.

The original was set in 2077 Japan and follows a female agent named Vexille who is dispatched to Tokyo to investigate whether the Japanese are developing robotic technology, which has been banned by the U.N. due to its potential threat to humankind.

Evan Spiliotopoulos (“Hercules: The Thracian Wars”) has been hired to pen the script for the remake which Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson will produce.
