See the Live-Action Gantz Movie! Kinda!

Hey, I said "kinda."

See the Live-Action Gantz Movie! Kinda!

Technically, you're seeing pictures of it. But hey, it's more than worth it, because one of those pictures is of Kishimoto. Insert wolf-whistle here.

I've read the first volume of the Gantz manga. I liked that the main character was a whiny punk and an asshole, other than that it didn't appeal to me a whole lot. 
 
Dunno what to expect of this.

All I care about is who going to play Sakuraoka.  To bad it's not this person.

Consider that wolf whistle inserted.

@Sonata: Hell yes but instead of miss melons we`ll call her miss buns XD

Her boobs are not absurdly large enough.

Is a live-action Gantz actually in production right now?!

@Arjuna: In Japan, yup. ^_^

Indeed.
 
Though visuals are all I can go on. Gantz is on the list of things to eventually get around to.

Very late for the party, but fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck yah! My favorite Manga now is going to have a Live-Action Movie. Gantz is the kind of story that could get picked up by Showtime, HBO or Starz for a better production team to compete with True Blood, Spartacus and Dexter if they keep it close to the source material. It would be best described as Lost meets Surviving the Game for marketing.
I think a live-action movie will not be enough to successfully make the fans of the series happy. Gantz is much bigger than what a 2 hour movie could provide.

Wow, that's a tiny Kishimoto...Who is playing her, she doesn't look familiar to me. 
 
I did always appreciate that the main character in Gantz wasn't some heroic "thrust into the situation so I'm gonna save the world".  He's just an asshole teenager that is looking out for himself, mostly.  It's a difference I can appreciate a fair bit.
