    Kenichi Matstumato is going to act in it?
    Sounds like something worth checking out though i bet there's going to be a lot of CG effects. I hope it'll be as bloody and twisted as Battle Royale or something.

    The success of this film shall depend entirely upon how tight the suit's are on the female characters.

    Yes, Vancyer! I hope I'm not going to be disappointed like I was after Battle Royale. But regardless of how well they make it, I still think that the manga will kick a lot more ass (as usual)!

    @Damura, I agree about the suits! But I also think that the gore will make a big difference.

    Re: Gantz Live Action Films Confirmed for 2011

    When I first started reading the manga, I noticed how that the chapters "read very quickly." So, for some time, I've felt that a live-action Gantz is doable.

    My vision for a complete adaptation might be a bit too costly, though, as I feel that Phase I should have two films. For example, the first film would end right before

    and the second film would end

    Phase II can probably fit into one film, though.

    I'm looking forward to this no matter what!

    Re: Gantz Live Action Films Confirmed for 2011

    I think I am going to cry.A Gantz live action movie will ruin the reputation that Gantz has built up and I think that reputation should be very positive,if a movie is in the works,but this wont be good,it cannot be good,they cannot stick to the manga completely,how can they?If they wanna stick true to the manga and do everything that was in the manga,they would need to make it a weekly tv show and not a movie,cause nobody is going to make a movie that lasts forever this is stupid.There should also be a poll to this thread to see how many want this movie to be made and not :/ Im going not.Plz God say it aint so,plz!

    Movies = Good
    Comic Books = Good
    Comic Book Movies = Great
    Comic Book Movies with low budgets and crap actors = Bad
    Relatively obscure manga movie with a low budget and a J-Pop star as the lead actor = Very bad.

    I don't very high hopes for this movie. Either two things will happen:
    The acting will totally suck but the action will more than make up for it or the Acting will suck and the action will suck as well.

    The odds of this movies being both action packed AND well acted are slim. And I like Battle Royale a lot. It didn't follow the manga because it wasn't supposed to. The manga and movie both took on different interpretations on the original book.

    Re: Gantz Live Action Films Confirmed for 2011

    The anime was 26 episodes long (20min x 26 = 8h 40min) and it lasted until the end of the third mission. It did have filler parts in it and it was really slowed down so I think it could have been maybe 13-17 episodes long.

    That equalls over four hours for the first three missions. I really don't think they will be able to get to the end of phase 1 in two movies. I think the first movie will end after the third mission and the second movie will end after the Tae mission.

    Depending on the success of the movies they might make a third one that goes until the end of Phase 1, but i don't think they will.

    Most likely they will screw Gantz up beyond belief and it will be terrible. But i'm willing to bet that most Gantz fans will watch it out of curiosity. I know I will.

    Gantz is my crack

    The Battle Royale movie was a huge disappointment by comparison with the manga. I didn't like any of the character depictions, the plot wasn't satisfying, and the pace was terrible. Hopefully, the Gantz movie won't suffer this. I won't mind if they compromise certain aspects of Gantz as long as they still maintain the themes, the personalities, the intense action, the tech, and just the overall plot. They don't have to do every mission in order or anything like that.

    Wouldn't it be weird if they fused the roles of Izumi and Kato into one character? xD

    Also, if you liked the Battle Royale movie you should have your taste checked. I mean really, they removed a lot of what made the characters fascinating and compelling, the action was anticlimactic at several points, the whole thing with the teacher was stupid, and I love how the narrative of the Battle Royale manga gives you insight into almost every member of the class. It just doesn't compare with the manga in any aspect. Just because it wasn't meant to be like the manga doesn't mean it excuses it being mediocre.

    Re: Gantz Live Action Films Confirmed for 2011

    I don't expect much because it is impossible to make it 100% good for everyone but I hope it will be not a fail-movie like Dragon Ball Revolution. And I hope they don't overdo it with special effects and CG, otherwise it will look cheap. It is better to use GC only to support the movie. It is better to build props, puppets and costumes(really good of course!)and using the CG when they really need to. I also hope they hire good artists if they use CG, I really like how they made it in District 9, it looked like that the Aliens, Ships and Robot really were there.

    I also think it's better to make 3 movies instead of only 2 because the Story is pretty long and still not finished. <--- actually this came in my mind; if they do these 2 movies and want them to finish them in 2011 that also could mean that the Manga will be finishied before 2011!
    Will it be that both movies tell the complete story of Gantz or will be eventually more movies?

    Even if these movies would fail it will be still entertaining to watch!XD
