Live-Action "Kiki's Delivery Service" Rumored
Shimizu Takashi rumored to be on board for adaptation
If you're thinking "left over April Fools' joke," you're not the only one, but credible global movie news site Twitch is reporting rumors that Ju-On and The Grudge director Takashi Shimizu is on board for a live-action adaptation of Kiki's Delivery Service.
Twitch says its an adaptation of the beloved Hayao Miyazaki anime movie, but in theory, if such a project exists, it could be an adaptation of Eiko Kadono’s original book.
This is far from the first mention of a live-action Kiki. In 2005, Variety broke the story that Jeff Stockwell was writing a live-action adaptation for Disney.
