I'm looking for a list of Japanese anime and manga (no manwha, etc) made into live action shows please and thank you!

I realize that there are lists of Japanese drama and Asian drama out there, but I'm specifically looking for shows or movies or whatever so long as it's live action BASED ON anime or manga.

From what I heard the Bebop movie was cancelled, however imdb has an American-made Death Note set for like 2014.

@Fritz: Thank you!

Probably the best source online for 'live action' stuff based on manga is http://mydramalist.info

Specifically, you can filter your search there to show everything based on manga. The based on manga search currently delivers more than 500 results:
http://mydramalist.info/title/index/type/drama/Title%5Bname%5D//Title%5Bsort%5D/ascending/Title%5Bbased_on%5D%5Bis%5D%5B%5D/manga

You can filter further if you just want films, tv dramas, etc. There's hardly a better filter system out there. XD

Boys Over Flowers has been made into Korean and Japanese dramas. Goong (okaaay, it's a manhwa, you got me) was turned into a Korean drama called Princess Hours. They're both really good, and there's a funny moment of cross-over between the two ^_^
