The Mega Man movie is somehow still alive in 2020

For years I've been following the Mega Man film (over three now!), waiting and hoping that something will come of it: just on principle, regardless of quality. Annually, someone usually comes out and says "it's still alive!" and now we have our fill for 2020.

Speaking to IGN, co-directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman promise that a new writer is now onboard (Mattson Tomlin - Project Power) and that the project is still moving forward. The team is apparently "super excited" about the addition, and they "think [they're] going to have some big news" regarding the movie soon. This is it! No takesies-backsies. Maybe.

I hope it's as endearing as the Sonic film was: though of course, there was plenty of room for improvement there. Given that the directors are "fascinated by robotics and the future of automation," there's a chance it could have some heavy themes.
