“Evangelion” director Hideaki Anno will be in charge of the screenplay and direction of a live-action “Shin Kamen Rider” movie, scheduled for release in March 2023. The announcement was made during the “Kamen Rider 50th Anniversary Plan Announcement Conference” held today 3rd April.

This project will mark the third time the esteemed anime and film director has helmed a “Shin” reboot project — after “Shin Ultraman” and “Shin Godzilla”, outside of his own “Shin Evangelion” film tetralogy.

In other “Kamen Rider 50th Anniversary” news, “Futo Tantei” — the sequel manga of “Kamen Rider W”, will be getting a TV anime adaptation. Last but not least, “Kamen Rider BLACK” will be getting a reboot by Director Kazuya Shiraishi titled “Kamen Rider BLACK SUN”.
