Last year we posted an awesome fan-made movie trailer for a big screen Green Lantern film, edited together by Jaron Pitts using clips from a bunch of different movies, using composited computer generated imagery. If you haven’t seen it before, click the link and watch it now. Scott Glassgold, co-chief of IAM Entertainment, saw the Green Lantern trailer shortly after acquiring remake rights to Technotise – Edit i ja, a Serbian anime movie based on a graphic novel of the same name. He commissioned Jaron to edit together a trailer to “raise awareness for the property and bring to life our vision for a live-action remake.”
The trailer was released online in January and apparently caught the eye of Avatar executive producer Laeta Kalogridis, who has been shopping the adaptation around Hollywood. Tonight it was revealed that Legendary Pictures ended up winning the bid to develop the big screen adaptation.
