The duo join Michael B. Jordan, who as previously announced will voice protagonist rebel pilot Julian Chase in “gen:Lock.” In the series, Earth’s last free society is on the losing side of a global war and desperately seeks recruits to operate the next generation of giant, weaponized robots known as “mecha.”
Fanning (“The Alienist,” “The Twilight Saga”) will voice Miranda Worth, an expert mech pilot and Chase’s love interest. Yamadera (“Cowboy Bebop,” “Ghost in the Shell,” “Dragon Ball Super”) will voice Kazu Iida, one of the new recruits transferring from Japan’s military forces to fight alongside Chase in the gen:Lock program.
“Gen:Lock” is the second anime-style series from Rooster Teeth Animation, and will be co-produced with Jordan’s Outlier Productions. The company’s popular “RWBY” franchise, conceived by the late Monty Oum, enters its sixth season this fall…”
