Thats right! Higurashi is slated for a live action release in 2008. It may suck and it may not but I'll have to watch it one way or another.

I dont think that the character will look like that in the movie. I pretty sure the pictures on the site are just stock face photos. I too think that Rika and Satoka should be switched.

Sounds interesting. Definitely gonna check it out. I hope they can do the maniacal laughter correctly.

Yeah, Rika seems to be a bit too old but I guess if they put anyone younger....the poor little girl will be scarred forever.

Seems like the movie will be based on the first story arc....you know....the one where keiichi goes nuts and kills Mion and Rena with a bat. Should be great...if they do it right.

From what i've seen about the film so far it's looking like it could be realy good

i was wondering a while back but how old does every one think the charictors are, it never tells you in the sereis
so my guess is Mion/Shion are about 16/17 since they both have jobs Rena and keiichi are one year younger so 15/16. But i have no idea about Satako and Rika but considering the ages of there actresses there proberly about 13
And any one wondering about why Rika's Actress is older that satiko's chances are Rika has a much more difficult part and needed to be more mature

also check this site out http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/2007/08/27/103,1188216468,77091,0,0.html
(you might need to translate it) the pictures of the fesival are looking realy good

Not many Anime to Movie plots are the same. Look at Death Note for instance. In the Anime Light defeated L but in the movie L whooped his butt! XD

It works for me. Keiichi's paranoia arc is my favorite anyway....though maybe Rena's arc would have been better...from a cenima standpoint....

Yeah, I think the Onikakushi-hen will be hard to do on a movie...what with the eyes and all...I think the last arc, Atonement, would be the easiest, but would require a lot of characters...I don't know which on they'll do...maybe even the Cat-killing chapter?

I agree though, just from the pictures Satokoshould play Rika and Rika should play Satoko. Mion looks great and so does Kiechii. Rena I can't really say...the picture isn't good enough to make a call on.

I just hope that this company can invest in a wig or two...
