The strategic game and anime series “Bakugan” will be coming to the big screen. Universal Pictures confirmed to TheWrap that Norwegian filmmaker Harald Zwart will be directing the film. It is not known on whether the film will be an animation or live-action. TheWrap described “Bakugan” featuring marble-like balls that transform into powerful monsters when rolled on game cards. Bakugan Battle Brawlers card game was named “Toy of the Year” by the Toy Industry Association for 2008 and 2009. Zwart previously directed “One Night at McCool’s,” “Agent Cody Banks,” “The Pink Panther 2,” and “The Karate Kid” reboot. So why not "Yu-Gi-Oh!," "Magic: The Gathering" or "Bella Sara" movies? Only time will tell.Source: TheWrap »
