Warner Brothers Hoping To Develop Movie Adaptation Of ‘Bleach’
  |  @   |  

Warner Brothers is already in the business of adapting Japanese manga into live-action feature films having acquired the rights to Katsuhiro Otomo’s cherished Akira, and possibly even hiring the Hughes Brothers to direct (Read: The Hughes Brothers To Direct Two-Part Live-Action “˜Akira’ Movie). But the studio isn’t stopping there; it’s being reported that WB is currently working to obtain the rights to Bleach.

The manga, which is written and illustrated by Tite Kubo, revolves around a teenage boy named Ichigo Kurosaki who can see ghosts and one day accidentally obtains the abilities of a Soul Reaper (the Japanese personification of death, much like the Grim Reaper). With these new found abilities — similar to our own superhero stories — he must learn how to use them, protect the innocent from evil spirits known as Hollows, and guide spirits safely to the other side.

DreamWorks Moving Forward With 3-D ‘Ghost In The Shell’ Project
  |  @   |  

A new movie based on the Japanese manga franchise Ghost in the Shell has been talked about for a while now, but it appears that DreamWorks is ready to give it another big go. It has been announced that Laeta Kalogridis has been hired to write the script, and that the live-action movie will be filmed entirely in 3-D with Avi Arad, Ari Arad among the producers.

Ghost in the Shell is a highly-futuristic story about a cyborg named Motoko Kusanagi who works for a Japanese Public Safety division known as Section 9. She is almost completely composed of mechanical components with only her brain remaining organic. The title is something of an allegorical reference to whether her soul (ghost) exists within her shell of a synthetic body — Motoko often even wonders if her memories are also manufactured and nothing about her is real. The character has been used in many different ways, so it’s not known if DreamWorks plans to create their own story based on the manga or if they may remake one of the pre-existing anime movies.

Mysterious Japanese ‘Harry Potter’ Trailer Discovered!
  |  @   |  

Very recently a ton of screenshots from a grainy Japanese Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince showed up, but the actual trailer was nowhere to be seen.

As expected, that trailer has now been unveiled by Blog Hogwarts, who found it somewhere on YouTube.

The video is pretty congested and tough to see, but it does have quite a few new bits that we haven’t seen yet. It also gives a little more insight into Jim Broadbent‘s Professor Slughorn character (for those who haven’t read the books) and his place in the next story.

In this sixth installment, Harry learns many things about the dark past of Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) after discovering a book which claims itself property of the Half-Blood Prince.

Click yourself over to the other side for the trailer!
