Skydance Productions has upped Christopher McQuarrie from writer to both writer and director for Star Blazers, the live-action adaptation of the space-set 1970s anime TV series also known as Space Battleship Yamato.
'In the futuristic Star Blazers, Earth’s atmosphere has been obliterated by a distant alien race, and the survivors have one year before radiation will reach their underground refuge and wipe out the human race. The survivors get a shot of hope in the form of alien technology that can deliver a small crew across the universe and back with the means to stave off extinction.'
