David Fincher and Tim Miller Are Developing an Animated Anthology Series for Netflix Called LOVE, DEATH & ROBOTS
More big animation news from Netflix! Director David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, Gone Girl) has teamed up with director Tim Miller (Deadpool) to develop an animated anthology series called Love, Death & Robots.
This will be an adult-themed series that will tell stories from all kinds of different genre’s such as science fiction, comedy, fantasy and horror, “including imaginative characters such as sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers and robots gone wild.”
The series will consist of 18 animated shorts that will be made using various animation styles including traditional 2D and photorealistic CGI. When talking about the series, Miller said:
“Love, Death & Robots is my dream project. It combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so fucking excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”
This actually sounds like it’ll be pretty awesome, and I’m excited to see what comes of it. Miller perviously worked with Fincher on the opening credits sequence for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Fincher is set to start production on the upcoming World War Z sequel, and Miller is working on the highly anticipated new Terminator film along with an adaptation of the cyberpunk sleeper hit novel Neuromancer for Fox.
Does this sound like an animated series that you might enjoy watching?
