At this point time you can almost certainly count on Warner Bros. Japan to dive into live-action territory for various favorite manga IP. Better part of the last ten years have earned them great promise with adaptations such as Gintama, Fullmetal Alchemist, Blade Of The Immortal, Bleach and JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure, and the Rurouni Kenshin saga which rounds out the film series this summer with two more in the pipeline.
Their newest push now adds to the roster with Tokyo Revengers, signaling mangaka Ken Wakui’s return to feature cinema since the adaptations of his 2005 manga, Shinjuku Swan with Sion Sono at the helm. Published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2017, Tokyo Revengers centers on Takemichi Hanagaki, a ne’er do well who travels back twelve years in time to climb the delinquent gangster hierarchy and prevent the murder of the only girlfriend he’s ever had.
These are the only current details the studio is offering aside from a Fall 2020 release, so any updates forthcoming should be expected by the summer, including the usual promo assets – teasers and posters and such. More to come. (Anime News Network)
