"20th Century Fox has announced, that the rights have been bought to a live action adaption to Yu Yu Hakusho as of early July 2008. Film is planned for a July 2010 release, and actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Megan Fox have been attached to play lead roles of Yusuke Urameshi and Botan."

What do you think of this?

I personally can't see this movie being well made. There are some remakes that can be pulled off but this one seems challenging. All I hope is that there's love put into the movie for the fans.

Edit: If you don't know who or what the actors look like then here:
Joseph Gordan-Levitt


I think he looks like a good enough Yusuke, if only he was a bit younger. I have no idea if he's a good actor though. Rumour has it that he's also going to play a main character in Akira long with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Megan Fox

She's really pretty. She played in Transformers, but that's the only movie I've seen her in. Eeh, I can't see this woman being in a movie based on a cartoon or just as Botan!

I don't think they'll ever make new episodes of the series. Right now the author's working on Hunter x Hunter, but he's been sick unfortunately.

I can admit it's most likely going to be messed up. There are just some things that should be left alone after it's been finished. But we'll just have to see if it's going to be as bad as we think it will be.
