    Live Action 'Noir' Development Announced

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    Now on the subject of Live Action adaptation of Anime, this little article has recently come out...
    Exclu: Starz has picked up an action project from Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert that's based on a Japanese anime TV series.

    Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Xena, Priest, Legend of the Seeker) and Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Xena, Legend of the Seeker) are executive producers for the project, while Stephen Lightfoot (Criminal Justice, House of Saddam) is serving as both the writer and an executive producer.

    Yeah, the story could be adapted much easier than the Akiras or Evangelions we've heard about before.

    Sam Rami usually does an amazing job with his movies. I'm sure the series is in safe hands. <3

    ive always been a fan of Sam Raimi with Evil Dead and Spider-Man so i would say its safe to assume it should be cool. im curious who theyre gonna get to do the soundtrack since that was favorite part of the anime.
