Guillermo Del Toro has many planned projects to do many projects. As well as The Strain, he has recently announced he is interested in doing a Gantz movie. The full comment can be read here.
I also think that I am very influenced by Japanese game designers. I am friends and a big friend of Hideo Kojima, and I have been lucky enough to be friends with Otomo-San. But the series I think would be FANTASTIC to adapt, but I would love to adapt live-action GANTZ. I love the books, I love the book i don't know if you're familiar with it, called BLAME - it's a really surreal, beautiful book, but I don't know if you know it. But it's written by Tsutomu Nihei. And I love the work of Katsuya Terada. But I tried my best as an anime fan to try to do the first live action anime movie with Pacific Rim. And that was one of the reasons why I wanted to achieve an almost superpure color palette of super-saturated colors. I was hoping to make the movie feel as dynamic and as vibrant as anime.
This doesn't mean he will make a Gantz movie however, just that he thinks it would be a great manga to adapt. Del Toro is working with HBO to create an adaption of Naoki Urasawa's Monster. The first script has already been done. An animated series for Pacific Rim has also been confirmed, with at least 13 episodes and possibly done as an anime.
