Takashi Miike to Direct a Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Movie?

Posted on the 28 May 2011 by Trigger
Takashi Miike to direct a Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Movie?Takashi Miike is a japanese director who has been known to direct up to half a dozen movies a year.
He was recently interviewed in Cannes and gave a passing mention to his upcoming project: "It is a very light comedy that I am filming now, a court drama, based on a video game, the Nintendo game DS."
Akward translation aside, Ace Attorney seems to fit the bill.
His filmography already included a video game adaptation with Like a Dragon (a.k.a. Yakuza on western shores), which was perhaps closer to what moviegoers expect of Miike, best known for violent movies such as Ichi the Killer and Audition.
If anything, we can at least expect a faithful adaptation.
