Directors of Deadpool and Gone Girl team up with Netflix for incredible new series
Two of the best film-makers in the world, working together on a jaw-dropping project
Netflix announced on Monday that they are teaming up with Tim Miller (director of Deadpool and the upcoming Terminator sequel) and David Fincher (the guy behind Fight Club, Mindhunter, Gone Girl, and loads more) on their new animation anthology series Love, Death & Robots.
The directors will both be executive producing the series, which will bring together some of the biggest and best animators in the world to tell a series of stories that will span the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres.
Each episode will be between five and 15 minutes long, and aimed at an adult audience, with the official press release telling us that we should expect "sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers, robots gone wild, garbage monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, aliens spiders, and blood-thirsty demons from hell" as they all converge in what will be a 185-minute anthology.
It's been described as NSFM (Not Safe For Mainstream) and Miller released a very excited statement, expressing his huge anticipation for audiences to see the show.
"Love, Death & Robots is my dream project, it combines my love of animation and amazing stories," he said.
"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."
