New Gamera Movie in the Near Future?

Spinning flame-jetted turtles, space birds being chopped up like bologna, kids in shorts screaming for help...the original Gamera series was a strange mix of wacky fun!! The 90's Gamera films set a standard that other kaiju films are measured against! Discuss Gamera films here!!

I suppose Gamera being licensed out to another studio or perhaps a co-production with Kadokawa and someone else would be our best bet for seeing Gamera again.

Funny: most of us Western fans have no conception of things that must be common knowledge to the average Japanese filmgoer, such as the scale of the productions studios usually make.

but who would be willing to team up with Kadokawa for a co-production.
Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
A single laugh demolished the right arm
Of his own country; — seldom since that day
Has Spain had heroes.

where did all the happy endings go?, where could all the good times be.

I was just spitballing. Maybe Tsuburaya? Taguchi's doing such a great job with the classic Tokusatsu effects it'd be great to see him do them on a larger scale.

--- edit ---

... then of course there's always a US studio getting the rights alá Godzilla. I'm just saying; Guillermo del Toro is a huge Gamera fan!

Matt Frank's a good artist, but not necessarily a font of information. It's a likely scenario, though.

^ Well, I know he's got fans in Japan, seen pics of him visiting Japan (including the set of Ultraman Orb!) so at the very least he's closer to the source than us.

It's also the kind of thing you'd never see in a press release: we're sorry, but we don't make big budget movie!

... it's a shame they couldn't have just finished the 'pilot film' as a 7 minute short or something and shown it in front of major releases. It could've drummed up interest in the character.

*sigh*

You know, with Toho under orders to steer any of their Godzilla films out of 2019 and 2020 it would be the perfect chance for another Japanese studio to revive another Japance monster in, say, autumn or winter 2019.
