Known to some as "Battle of the Planets" others as "Eagle Riders" or "G-Force" ,"GATCHAMAN", the iconic anime series, is getting its' long overdue big screen adaptation courtesy of Nikkatsu Co.

In case you didn't know, the original series is centered around five young superhero ninja in the employ of Dr. Kōzaburō Nambu of the "International Science Organization (ISO)" who oppose an international terrorist organization of technologically advanced supervillains, known as Galactor, from trying to take control of all of Earth's natural resources.

Naturally, the five heroes are gifted in an array of abilities which range from combat proficiency to hacking to explosives, which they use to defeat the forces of evil, who happen to come in the form of mutated earth creatures, enhanced by Galactor.

The basis for the live action movies seems to possibly be the international "Battle of the Planets" version, since internet site "IMDB.com" lists Gregory Pekar as "Director General Anderson", the name given to "Kōzaburō Nambu-hakase", "Gatchaman's" head director and boss, in the international release.

Will this be Japan's "X-Men", in that, is this the beginning of a series of films for the franchise? What do you think?

We'll keep a lookout for further details...
