LENS FLARES! LENS FLARES EVERYWHERE!

But seriously, this movie hasn't even fucking breathed for 2 years. And Hollywood ALREADY wants to bastardize the IP. It's gonna be boring as fuck. The big, big appeal of the original movie was largely the visuals (for me). Live action is not gonna replicate that level of awe visuals-wise. And it'll just be cliche as hell. They already screwed up Death Note & Ghost in The Shell, which is cult success on a silver platter but they managed to botch it nonetheless lmao.

inb4 they get Nat Wolff to play the lead role and have him act as the complete opposite of what his character is supposed to be.

Also producing is Genki Kawamura, the producer of the original 2016 film.

"Your Name is a film created with the innate imaginations of a Japanese team and put together in a domestic medium,” said Shinkai in a statement. “When such a work is imbued with Hollywood filmmaking, we may see new possibilities that we had been completely unaware of. I am looking forward to the live-action film with excited anticipation.”

Paramount and Bad Robot will work with Toho Co., which produced the original, on the development of the project. Toho will handle distribution of the film in Japan.


If you don't like it, don't watch it.

It could get more people to watch the anime.

I mean if Hollywood wants to throw a bunch of licensing money at Shinkai I'm not complaining.

There are worse places it could've gone.

I haven't seen the anime, but reading the plot it sounds like it is more in Cristopher Nolan's wheelhouse that J.J Abrams
