Yup you read the headline right ladies and gentlemen the popularand on-going Manga byTite Kubo is getting the big Hollywood treatment. ComingSoon.net broke the story moments ago and the Otaku community flipped the hell out. Bleach follows the exploits and adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki a teenager gifted with the ability to see spirits. His life is changed when he has a run in with the Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki who is on the hunt for dangerous spirits called Hollows. When Rukia is severly wounded in tracking a dangerous Hollow she transfers her powers to Ichigo and he takes up the mantle of Soul Reaper battling Hollows and guiding souls to the afterlife realm known as the Soul Society.
Ok let me be the first to say I saw this move coming years ago when Bleach first came out and then when it started to get bigger in the States. Warner Bros. is set to adapt the live-action Bleach movie with Peter Segal who directed 'Get Smart' as it's director and Dan Mazeau who wrote (Wrath of the Titans) is attached to draft the screenplay.
As an Otaku and advid lover of the Bleach series I'm half and half on wanting this project to happen. I know it might end up being a crap fest but I still hope for something that will make me go "Yes.. i've been into this Anime and Manga before it was the cool thing to love. We will just have to see what happens. Until then I know alot of fellow Otaku who are none to happy about this news.
