    Manga creator Yasuhisa Hara revealed in a message on Sunday that a live-action film adaptation of his Kingdom manga has been green-lit. Hara said that he took part in script meetings, and praised the "satisfying" screenplay, the "unprecedented" budget, and everyone in the "ultra-grand" cast. He also teased the upcoming start of filming, although more details about the project will be announced later.

    [​IMG]
    Hara's historical manga centers around the slave boy Xin and his dream of becoming a great general for the state of Qin. Xin helps Ying Zheng, the young Qin king who shares his desire to unify China, rise to power within the state. Xin does all he can to become a superior commander of an army capable of defeating the Seven Warring States.

    Should be easier than a lot of other manga/anime to transfer to screen.

    Considering how there are a lot of live-action adaptations of real past events, and how the manga itself is based off of such event, then yeah, it should be easier.
    Same.. (Nevermind)
    I don't think that it can be worse. :lmao:

    :DDWow. That looks so good. Adapting war scenes is not so easy. Not only that, those other moments are so visually stunning!

    EDIT: Thanks for informing. Must see.:hungry:

    I would actually prefer a good anime adaptation instead of this. Under another studio & bigger budget of course.

    But now that live-action film is under way I am not that optimistic about the future of an anime reboot.

    And can be made to look good, but if they don't include all the gore and blood it will be shit. Like scenes where heads where cut in half should be shown as it is
