“Terra Formars” Live-Action Film To Be Directed By Takashi Miike

Terra-Formars-Live-Action-Announcement-01There’s always a huge worry when it comes to live-action film adaptations of your favorite Anime or Manga and it usually lies in who it is that’s decided to spearhead development. An unfit director could mean the death of a film and it strikes at the hearts of all the series’ fans. It looks as though “Terra Formars” will not be causing too much distress with its live-action adaptation (which has just been green-lit) because the man behind it all will be none other than Takashi Miike.

Yes, Takashi Miike, possibly one of the best directors, period, but also one of the most suited to adapt a story like “Terra Formars”. He is, without a doubt, my favorite Japanese director and with films like “Crows Zero”, “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney”, “Tokyo Tribe, and “Ichi The Killer” under his belt, I can imagine most of you reading this love his work too.

As far as detailed information goes; there really isn’t any. The announcement in Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine stated only that the film has been green-lit for production and that Miike is at the helm. More information is surely to come in due time but for now let’s just enjoy this moment. From what is a great Manga ruined by a sub-par Anime series is about to become what I’m hoping will one day be considered a legendary film. Do we know what part of the “Terra Formars” story Miike will tell? No, but which ever he chooses I’m sure he’ll pull off seamlessly in true Takashi Miike style.

      Well yeah both the news of Takashi Miike’s involvement and the fact that this film actually exists was announced today, so there ya go. Happy Saturday! Now I feel like watching Takashi miike films

      • Ah, I’m not as out of the loop as I thought then haha

        When I think of the movies Gozu & Audition, with two of the most jaw dropping & disturbing scenes I’ve ever seen in a movie, I’m really curious to see what he does with Terra Formars! And yeah, now you mention it, watching a movie of his sounds like a really good idea now!

  1. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you should publish more about this subject matter, it
    might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t speak
    about these subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  2. Hiya! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!

      Hahahah that’s fine :)

      If you’re using wordpress to produce your site there should be a pretty simple selection in the settings section that’ll allow for it to be mobile friendly. Just have a bit of a browse and I’m sure you’ll see it.

      Good luck!
