I heard this news a while back, but I didn't find a thread on it so I thought I'd educate the CR community. If you are familiar with the series Monster then you can agree with me, it's an entirely unique, amazing anime with one of the best story lines of anime in general, incredible animation, and great voice acting. This is truly one of the best animes out there, but maybe that's just my opinion. Anyways, New Line Cinemas has apparently jumped at the oportunity to bring Monster to the silver screen. Although the original article dealing with this which was posted in Reuters can no longer be viewed for reasons of which I am unaware, there are still a few pages floating around the web that would lead me to believe that this movie is going to happen:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2005-04-07/new-line-cinema-to-adapt-monster-manga
http://www.imdb.com/company/co0046718/
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469469/

Personally, I'm dreading this if it is to actually happen. But I'm not going to go into a frantic rant about how badly I don't want this to happen or even why, just letting you all know this may happen, it may not, but there's speculation none-the-less, and it scares me

What do you think?

MONSTER was a Great series! I couldn't get enough (even at 70+ episodes long). It did seem like it could be done OK in Live-action. Some series have crazy monsters or effects or slap-stick comedy that would be difficult to produce in live-action. But MONSTER seemed like it didn't necessarily have to just be in Anime form.

The big question will be, will the producers do it right? GTO was good live action. Other shows (like Cutey Honey and especially Devil Man) were real bad!

Interesting...hmmmm. That writers strike is really causing an anime adaption rush.

If any anime could translate well into an American psychological thriller film it would be Monster.

The story would have to be significantly revised though because 1440 minutes of content would need to be condensed into a couple hours

HELL FUCKIN NO Monster would suck ass as a Live action movie. There was like an episode dedicated to development to some charas you prolly wouldn't see half of the people from Monster nor would it have half of what happened I think that if they make a Live action "movie" it would have to be like a quintology of movies XD
