Apparently, Warner Bros. is working on securing the rights to make a live action version of Attack on Titan. I realize Hollywood doesn't have the best track-record in anime.manga adaptations, but who knows, we might actually get lucky, it's not like the Japanese version was good.

My question to everyone is, what do you think are the odds someone is going to complain about "white-washing" in a property where the vast majority of the characters seem to be European(or the manga universe's equivalent) in nature? After all, Mikasa is supposed to be the last Asian in the kingdom.

I've closed this thread because there's already a thread about it, and it appears the story is fake:
