they better not try to make gantz live action with american actors b/c the key points and the real story are always lost in translation. The Condemned was heavily influenced by the book/manga/movie Battle Royale and they changed so many things just to make it more palatable to the american audience, that it ended up being a completely different story.
having only japanese actors would cause a technical problem: as far as i know, there are no blond japanese or asiatic. then how would you like to play cherry: dying hair?! i think it wouldn't look very good...
i don't think the hair color would matter much, b/c honestly you can dye it or use a wig i mean people dye their hair all the time, right now i am looking at someone with naturally brown hair with bright purple streaks in it.
plus some of the characters have really weird hair colors to begin with doesn't titz have like red hair or something
It should only be a direct adaption of the manga if it's a Japanese film. If it's an American film, then they should absolutely show an American city team. NY, LA, and SF would all be great cities for Gantzing. And the more input from Oku, the better.
I actually don't see a Japanese film being too unrealistic, and if it does well, an American film wouldn't be too unrealistic either.

Re: Live Action
Well i think it that the Gantz actors should be some others no japanese,cause Kurono doesnt look japansese to me,so does Reika,Izumi,Katou and a whole more of them.I think it should be in Tokyo,the manga based story,i dont want no LA,NY stuff in it.
They have to be Japanese otherwise characters would end up with names like Brad and Britney. That would suck. Plus all the civilians look Japanese including Nishi, I know that many characters in the main cast don't really appear asian apart from the dark hair but they are so they should be portrayed by Asian actors. American actors would most probably turn the series into a farse, using crappy teen actors that really can't act all that well.
