Warner Bros. to set Bleach Film Release 2014  
So I read up on sankaku complex that Warner Bros. set to release a Bleach Film in 2014. At first I thought it was rumors when I heard but sankaku don't seem to post lies. I would post the link but it has explicit contents...but I will keep posting new information as I am informed.

It's too hard to explain Bleach in one movie!
There's so much depth
They will never do it justice ;________________;

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. I'm going to be very cautiously optimistic.

It has the POSSIBILITY to be decent if they a.) stick to the original manga as much as possible, b.) have good acting- have a cast of good Japanese actors for the most part (then again is such a thing possible for WB?), c.) Use VERY good special effects. Then again the kind of movie I want would have an Avatar-scale budget.

The Bleach musicals were pretty decent so I don't think a live action would be dreadful if done the right way.

Can't say I'll agree with hollywoods way since they usually cast the hottest stars at the time...

You know...I actually think this could work.

I was talking to a friend about it, and she said that it might not be such a bad idea, considering the movie might have an American ending (ex. romance between the two main characters...I will be one happy shiper with White!IchiRuki (?)). Also, the time events for SS could be shorten to hit a couple of hours. Less talking/bonding more fighting/Ichigo badassness. I don't know, but I am receiving this news with an open mind and low expectations...Like I do with every other movie.
Just Your Friendly Scrap Metal Dealertoshi_riku on March 24th, 2010 11:09 pm (UTC)
If its Americanized, I can only seem failure at it...especially with all the romance coming out they'll just make it hella cheesy and corny. Also the cast would be horrible...I can see it...

Greeeeaaaat, how much ya wanna bet that there gonna whitewash this the same way other companies whitewashed Dragonball (which was a brain burn), the Prince of Persia (which will be a tragedy), Avatar: The Last Airbender (which is going out of it's way to be offensive and all sorts of bad) etc....

I'm already bracing myself for the "Ichigo is not Japanese! He's so obviously white, look at his hair!"

Why can't they just bring over the animated movies? And, please, somebody tell me, what is Hollywood's obsession with ruining a good thing?

*raises hand*

I would be amongst those saying that while Ichigo may not be "white" as you or I would call it, he certainly does not look Japanese. In fact, I think he would look rather ridiculous with a Japanese actor and Ichigo's bright orange hair.

Well IMHO the best way to do it would be to start with Ichigo meeting Rukia and then move directly onto the memories in the rain arc. Maybe a little highschool humor, but I feel a normal film time would be able to realisticlt do Chad, Uryu and Orhime justice, let also the SS.

Putting up a date doesn't necessarily mean that it'll go through. Bleach will probably float around in development hell for a while. I'd like to be optimistic and give it the benefit of the doubt, but I think that it will be very difficult to adapt. It's a shounen action/supernatural title, and it seems that the trend of successful superhero and action movies generally involves using realism to bring credibility. At this point, it's much easier to adapt a seinen/josei series, a classic series (funding, established interest), or a series with minimal fantasy elements.

Bleach is popular but doesn't have much credibility, so it probably won't get the necessary funding for a serious, high quality adaptation. (Peter Segal, director of "50 First Dates" and "Get Smart" seems to be attached to the project at the moment.) The Japanese musical appeals mainly to established fans of the anime/manga and its draw is humor, curiosity, and music. If the movie was done in this manner, it wouldn't bring in many new fans and wouldn't have a broad enough appeal to be worth it for the studio. It would probably tank like Dragon Ball and Street Fighter did.

If it does go through, I think I'd actually be happier with a loose adaptation that keeps the concepts and main characters but doesn't follow the same story line and takes a new direction with the art. I'd rather not see a big budget cosplay skit. Furthermore, Kubo's designs are fairly simplistic, making them ideal for working a studio or designer's own style in. His fashion and interior design tastes might also be fun to slip in.

WELL, at the very least Ishida fans probably won't have much to worry about because he'll be IN ALL LIKELIHOOD CUT RIGHT OUT OF IT. ^_^

Seriously, Bleach takes place in Japan where shinigami is wearing kinomo. Goodness, Urahara wears a geta, not a high heel boot @__@. How can Hollywood pull this one up in America? Especially, Warner Bros? This is not "The Fast & The Furious 3 - Tokyo Drift", for all you know. And of course, there's no highschool kid that could act like Ichigo, Ishida or Chad, so they might add ages to him into college like what they did in DBE +__+
C.C. Lemoncclemon on March 25th, 2010 02:08 am (UTC)
I agree with this - Bleach is a distinctly Japanese story with distinctly Japanese characters, so I have a hard time seeing how it would either (1) translate over to a more Western setting without destroying the character of the story or (2) preserve the Japanese setting without being completely culturally inaccurate (which is the unfortunately the usual case with American movies)....

Jussst out of curiosity, since I never watched the original, what did people generally think of Aeonflux? I'll admit that Charlize Theron (while, you know, absolutely gorgeous) seemed a bit wooden, the first half of the film itself was quite watchable(although the ending itself made me go a little crazy)...
oh gallant piglet,aizome on March 25th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
I'm a huge fan of the cartoon, so I refuse to touch the film. I won't even rent it. Part of what made the original so awesome is Peter Chung's character designs are damned near IMPOSSIBLE to be played by actual human beings.
