Warner Bros. Pursuing Rights To Remake Attack On Titan

Warner Bros. is reportedly in the middle of talks to secure the rights to make a new film version of Attack on Titan.

The manga was previously adapted into an anime as well as for the big screen by Shinji Higuchi, who is also known for his work on last year’s Shin Godzilla. With Paramount Pictures due to release the highly-anticipated Ghost in the Shell later this year, it appears that Warner Bros. has endeavored to jump on the anime adaptation bandwagon while it still appears to be hot.

The only name said to be attached to the project at this point is David Heyman. Heyman boasts an impressive track record as a producer for such movies as Gravity, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Paddington, the Harry Potter series and its sister franchise Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

This story was reported by Superherohype, who shared the following information about the original Attack on Titan manga series:

Based on the popular manga series by Hajime Isayama, Attack on Titan takes place in a world where the remnants of humanity live inside a series of connected cities, isolated by enormous walls. These walls exists to keep the Titans out, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. These Titans have reduced the world’s population to staggeringly low numbers.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
