"As someone whose never really been a big fan of anime, that means that my childhood was void of any interest in cartoon/toy/card game crossovers like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokémon. Therefore, I can't say that I have much interest in this new project that sounds all too similar to those aforementioned imports. The Wrap reports Harald Zwart, who most recently helmed the remake of The Karate Kid, is attached to direct an adaptation of the strategic card game turned anime Bakugan Battle Brawlers. Going simply by the title Bakugan, the story utilizes a card game mixed with battles between monsters for a worldwide tournament."
