This will be interesting. According to Japan Times, famous Manga “ATTACK ON TITAN” will get a Hollywood live action adaptation. The director for this adaptation is Andy Muschietti ( who directed IT), and will be produced by David Heyman ( produced Harry Potter), Masi Oka ( Heroes) and Barbara Muschietti for Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc. 

No details have been put out as yet as to casting and release date, and I so hope that they won’t whitewash this adaptation in the casting process. But let’s wait and see what happens when casting occurs. 

Here is more from Japan Times on this news:

“I have always fantasized that one day my own manga would be accepted and acknowledged around the world,” the series’ creator Hajime Isayama said in a statement. “Now that this has come true, I feel utterly fortunate and can’t be happier about it.”

The manga series, known as “Shingeki no Kyojin” in Japanese, revolves around its protagonist Eren and his battle against giant creatures known as Titans that have overrun the world.

I am sure there will be more details to come soon.
