Those with access to an anime platform can still stream the heck out of the hit anime series, Attack On Titan. I still have yet to catch the new season and I’ll likely work on that during the holidays, while it’s still worth noting that roughly a year since news of a live-action film development at Warner Bros. gave some of us whiplash, it appears all has been inked and rendered official.
For this, Variety has it on good terms that Andy Muschietti, who topped the box office last year with It and is currently helming the horror sequel, will direct a new take on the property. The new move by Warner Bros. in finalizing its deal with Kodansha will mark the latest effort to bring the anime to a live-action template for the big screen following VFX wizard Higuchi Shinji’s 2015 two-parter from Toho.
Mangaka Isayama Hajime bred the now-popular 2009 Kodansha publication preceding the 2013 anime which center on mankind’s remaining walled-off cities in a world where mysterious man-eating titans rule the land. Oka Masi and Andy’s sister, Barbara Muschietti (It, Mama), are also on board to produce.
