Ace Attorney movie in the works?

News Movies DS Capcom

Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike suggested he is at working on a film adaptation of Capcom’s Ace Attorney series on Nintendo DS

Speaking to the Huffington Post at the Cannes Film Festival, where he is currently promoting Hara-Kiri: Death Of A Samurai, the director revealed that his next project would be something completely different

“It is a very light comedy that I am filming now,” he said, adding that it was “a court drama, based on a videogame, the Nintendo game DS.”

It’s a real change from his gory works in the past like Ichi The Killer, although Miike’s CV does contain a wide range of genres. Plus, he has previously worked with videogames, having adapted the Yakuza series for 2007’s Ryu Ga Gotuku Gekijoban.

    Hmmm. I could see it working more as an anime feature film. Or a short series. But a live action movie? I dunno. Though it being a comedy will work in it’s favor. I can’t imagine a “serious” version.
    Keep us posted on the film. I’m interested in seeing some trailers for it. 🙂
