The offical website of the Japanese publisher Frontier Works has announced on Friday that a live-action film adaptation of Hyouta Fujiyama's Pure Heart (Junjō) boys-love manga has been green-lit. According to the website, the story of the film will be "somewhat different" from the original three-volume manga series and the two drama CDs.

In this romance story, a writer named Tozaki happens to come across his first high school crush, Kurata, while on assignment. After the assignment, the two go out drinking, and Tozaki ends up confessing his old feelings for Kurata.

Rakuto Tochihara (RH Plus, Aquarian Age, Kamen Rider Hibiki) will play Tozaki, while Yūta Takahashi (Hana Zakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise, Café Kichijouji de, The Prince of Tennis musical) will play Kurata. Satoshi Kaneda (Ai no Kotodama) is directing off a screenplay by Hirotoshi Kobayashi (Dr. Pinoko no Mori no Bōken, Miracle Girls) and Kozuru.

Digital Manga Publishing's Juné imprint released the first volume of the manga series in North America last year.

A live action adaptation of Hideyuki Kikuchi's Vampire Hunter D may see the light of day.

In a post script written in the 13th Volume, of the Vampire Hunter D series, Twin-Shadowed Knight, Kikuchi thanked the success of Twilight for moving the cogs forward on a project that had been otherwise stalled.

As the creator of the series, my curiosity is boundless as to just how D will strike readers when he appears before them as a real actor and how those same readers will greet him.


Further information regarding the project such as which novel will be adapted, has not been provided.

Producer Andrew Lazar for Mad Chance (Space Cowboys, Jonah Hex) has told iFMagazine at Comic-Con International that while the writers for the Live Action Akira are working on a draf script it's not likely we will see the movie any time soon.
"It is a real priority project for Warner Brothers." he said "Sometimes movies need an enormouse amount of prep, like this one. It is not realistic to go before the third quarter of next year for a 2011 release."
This doesn't mean that the project has been given the green light for production yet either.



There is 'a lot of interest from a variety of people' for possible directors as indicated from Lazar. Lazar also emphasized that he is a 'very inclusive producer of underlying rights' and that the original manga creator Katsushiro Otomo is an executive producer and consultant on the proposed live-action project.

Manga.com (US Site) is reporting that there might not be an end all to end all for the Live Action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira.



According to Manga.com Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the star of 500 Days of Summer, said "You never know" when asked if the project was truly dead. Though this is far from a confirmation it may be just the flicker of hope that most fans were looking for. Besides it's a lot better than his comments last year which did not even acknowledge any connection to the project.

Futabasha filed a lawsuit in the Seoul Central District Court against Show East for alleged violations of their agreement, resulting in a breach in contract, on August 15.

The support of Tsuchiya and Minegishi as well as the Japanese publisher was offtered to DreamWorks by Futabasha for DreamWorks plans to adapt the manga with director Steven Spielberg and actor Will Smith.
