20th Century Boys Live-Action Trilogy

Anime News Network has plenty of details on an upcoming live-action adaption of Naoki Urasawa’s terrific 20TH CENTURY BOYS manga. I love this series — I really don’t know if I prefer MONSTER or not — and so I’m personally really excited to see how it’ll come off. It’s planned as a trilogy, with the first film coming out in August of this year. There is also an animated TV adaptation that is set to air sometime this year (I think in the spring).

UpdateMy wife just pointed out to me that the director of the film is also the man behind the TRICK TV series, starring Yukie Nakama and Hiroshi Abe, of which we’re both big fans. Definitely some good news!
