I think so, but maybe it wasn't really official then.

They got the Heroes guy and he's a fan of JJBA so that's cool by my book.

As a moderate fan of bleach I am actually excited. If its bad then its bad, its not like the result of this movie will affect my life or anything.

Instead of doing live-action adaptation which are going to suck I would much rather they do 3D CGI adaptations. Now that's something I would look forward to

This won't turn out well.. Dragon Ball Evolution and The Last Airbender were HORRIBLE, I would think they would learn their lesson! And orange hair will probably not translate well into live action. -_-
But I could have sworn I read somewhere that Kubo didn't want a live action adaptation.

Oh I see what you mean. Kind of like the Astro Boy movie from a few years back.
Anyways, maybe the movie won't be as bad as Dragon Ball Evolution was but we never know. If it ends up being horrible, then yeah I wouldn't be surprised.

I think it was in an intervew in Monthly Shounen Jump over her in the U.S.
but I may be wrong (and he probably said it somewhere else too)

Another one to be ruined by Hollywood.
And who'll play the role of Ichigo? Scott "Carrot Top" Thompson?

This is going to fail on an epic scale. Hollywood isn't known for doing well by licensces usually and I doubt this will be one of the rare exceptions.
Every minute you are thinking of evil, you might have been thinking of good instead. Refuse to pander to a morbid interest in your own misdeeds. Pick yourself up, be sorry, shake yourself, and go on again.

i'm sure they will screw the live action version to the point you cannot recognize it is bleach or some other shitty movies. the only similarity between anime and live action version is share the same title.

They've already fucked up a few like Dragonball, Avatar and I think it was Street Fighter?
Now their aiming for Bleach? Next thing you'll know we'll have a Naruto and OP live action as well made by the West!

I'm setting the bar low for this from what I have seen from others but who knows if this turns out even decently good I'll give them a standing ovation! We'll have to wait for the trailer and see what it will look like.
Touch me, you filthy casual~

"Other producers include Michael Ewing, Masi Oka, and Jason Hoffs at Viz Productions."

Everything I expect better than Dragon Ball Evolution now. ;u; If Viz is also working on it, that means they are going to be a bitch to Warner if they and/or Kubo don't like their work.

I just hope they totally don't americanize it and keep the script close to the manga as possible, expect with an ending where it's safe to stop yet it could be possible for a sequel (which i'd doubt there will be). Haters are gonna hate me, but I just hope it actually goes "okay".

I wondered why they chose Bleach before Naruto? :P I was sure that would increase profit since a lot of little kids prefer that.

My thoughts exactly. At least "fandom" won't be all up in arms about bad casting as anything. Our expectations aren't exactly high.

I cant see this going well no matter what Hollywood did with this.

What are the odds that the project is dropped or suspended indefinitely? These things are always a crapshoot.

Had this been made fact a few years ago, I would have been worried with the possibilities of a horrible outcome of an adaptation.

Fast forward to the present, and having lost the majority of my faith in Bleach, I would be fine with whatever trainwreck they come up with.

This won't enter production. I doubt if there'll even be a script written, tbh.
