Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. are negotiating to get the feature film rights to the Japanese manga, Attack On Titan. Rumour has it that the studio want Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them producer David Heyman to steam-line the adaption. The series has had great success on TV with an extremely popular (and well received) anime series which began in 2013. The manga has been adapted to film before, once in 2015, and then a sequel later in the year. Neither film really hit the mark (box office wise). Deadline is reporting that this adaption would be a remake of that, but nothing is really set in stone.
Attack On Titan follows humans who live behind a giant wall to keep themselves safe from the alien Titans. Once a group of humans desire to know what is really behind the wall, they form a scouting mission. Of course, things don’t go according to plan, and the humans must battle these giant aliens once again.
So, what do you guys think? Are you excited to see an adaption of Attack On Titan? This is the latest Japanese manga to receive an American adaption, following in the footsteps of this year’s Ghost In The Shell. Hopefully this film sticks closer to the source material in terms of casting… Warner Bros. are also adapting Akira, another brilliant Japanese flick.
