I know there was a thread about this, some time ago, but this time It's pretty much gonna be reality..
What do you guys think?
I edited the title so people can see this is not one of those "Gantz Movie threads" - GAT-X252

Great find man!=) I can't wait to see it but I don't expect much, if they don't f**k it up I hope it will be at least funny and entertaining!XD
Holy shit. Ho...ly... shit.
I know I shouldn't expect much, but still... D;
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.
Who's playing this character?
The success of this film shall depend entirely upon how tight the suit's are on the female characters.

This is gonna be so great, and what missions are the movies going to cover?
oh gosh PLEASE stay true to the manga
Meh I'd prefere an anime remake or second season.
@Damura, I agree about the suits! But I also think that the gore will make a big difference.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
