Kurt Wimmer's live action Ultraviolet may have ended up an incomprehensible mess but that hasn't stopped Sony from sanctioning the production of a new anime film based on the director's ill received film. And, while the new teaser embedded after the break, doesn't reveal much in terms of ways the story may have evolved, you do get the sense that it might end up being a heavy character piece.

Not to get too far off topic here but I'd like to take this opportunity to discuss Wimmer. Besides being the writer of the upcoming David Ayer film Street Kings, it has recently been announced that Wimmer will direct the live action Metal Gear Solid film for 2009. And, while not a massive fan of the game or anything, I am quite a fan or Wimmer's Equilibrium which, while on the surface may seem like an unoriginal dystopian pastiche, was still both visually and narratively striking. So I'm kind of looking forward to it.

Ultraviolet Code 044 is slated to open in Japan on July 1st.
