Afrotastic! Afro Samurai Live-Action Film in the Works!

THR reports that the US and Dominican Republic-based production group The Indomina Group announced during Comic Con the plan to produce a live-action adaptation of Takeshi Okazaki’s Afro Samurai manga.
Samuel L. Jackson, who voiced the grunty samurai in Studio Gonzo’s award-winning anime series will co-produce the film together with the animation studio. Shootings are supposed to start in the Dominican Republic next year, but footage of early stuntmen training sessions has already leaked… :monkey:
This should be pretty interesting, especially if they’re trying to bring all of Afro’s weird enemies to the screen.

Assault Girls: Coming to Blu-ray Disc thanks to Well Go USA

Asian Blu-ray Guide Contributor AnimeOnBlu just reported that Well Go USA will release Mamoru Oshii’s Assault Girls not only on DVD (as mentioned here) but also on Blu-ray Disc on October 19th. So Oshii fans have the chance to get their Girls with Guns kick with English subtitles for cheap if they don’t want to import the Japanese release.
My copy of the Japanese limited edition Blu-ray Disc arrived a few days ago and will be the subject of my next Blu-ray Disc Spotlight.
Pre-order Mamoru Oshii’s Assault Girls on Blu-ray Disc at Amazon.com

A First Look at Mamoru Oshii’s Live-Action Tetsujin 28 (28 ½)

After the first announcement back in December, the first images from Mamoru Oshii’s live-action adaptation of Tetsujin 28 (aka Gigantor) have surfaced. The film will be called 28 ½, I guess to seperate this version from the other adapations.
The first shot kinda reminds me of Oshii’s The Sky Crawlers
