‘Bleach’ Live Action Film In The Works

The live action Akira project may or may not be dead, but it seems that WB is now developing a new film based on the popular magna Bleach. Then I find out who’s pitching it…and whatever cartwheels I was doing came to an abrupt end.

The nice folks from Coming Soon report:

Peter Segal, who most recently directed Get Smart, will produce and potentially direct while Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) is attached to draft the screenplay.

I have yet to see if Wrath Of The Titans is better than its previous film. The script and who’s writing it isn’t the problem. It’s the director. It’s not that I hated Get Smart. I loved it in fact. It’s just that…in the magna, the lead character, Ichigo Kurosaki, has the power to see ghosts. He meets a mysterious woman who hunts evil ghosts called Hallows. She transfers her powers to him, making him a ‘Soul Reaper’.

I know I shouldn’t jump to this conclusion, maybe Segal wants to be known for more than one genre. Some directors have done other genres other than the ones they are known for, and have been successful at it. I’m just hoping beyond hope that WB execs don’t want to camp it up. Maybe I’m nervous for no reason.

While I’m here, I would rather see an animated magna Bleach film on a big screen. Just between you and me (and anyone else who heeds my request)

    I would be a bit concerned and do see this being camped up quite a bit mainly to draw as much younger viewers as possible. Don’t get me wrong Bleach does have it lighter moments and bits of humor but more often than not there is a lot of violence considering they are fighting monsters and then that whole ark with Aizen. I’m not sure how this will translate into live media. I have seen the animated movies that have come out of Japan, the first two were good but didn’t like the third one so much. Perhaps this would be good as a cgi movie?
