Gale Anne Hurd's Valhalla Entertainment ("The Walking Dead") and Toei Animation have teamed with All Nippon Entertainment Works (ANEW) to develop Toei's iconic anime property Gaiking..
Gaiking follows a young man who is recruited to serve as the lead pilot for the Super Robot Gaiking. When Earth is threatened by an alien race intent on taking over the planet, he emerges as the only one who can pilot the massive robot. Together with his fellow co-pilots he must fight off the alien force in order to save mankind.
"I'm extremely excited to be working on 'Gaiking,'" said Hurd, "which marks a huge step forward in adapting one of the best Japanese IP for a global audience."
