Is this a Japanese live-action or an American one?

Not that it matters. I will just stick to the anime, which actually seems pretty good.

It could actually be done pretty well... maybe not so much the second half, but they do love their CGI nowadays.
I've never heard of convergence entertainment though.

Oh, why...

This franchise has the potential to be something really, really great if someone with an eye for mafia flicks got a hold of it.

I bet anything it's going to end up like The Punisher movie.

If by any chance they ditch the whole orcman concept, this would make a decent movie.

I'll be checking this out! Gungrave series is decent and IMO can be turned into a movie w/o messing w/ the pacing :D

Indeed, it has potential, but I wonder if it'll be used or not...

My thoughts exactly. ^_^

Someone with the right talent could easily turn the 1st half, of the story, into an awesome gangster flick. Let's just hope they try to do exactly that and not what the new Priest Live Action is going to do... IN 3D (>_<)!

It would be so awesome if Quentin Tarintino does it.

Which I doubt.

I seriously don't know how the hell gungrave can be turned into a live action film unless the producers create some half-assed plot that focuses on the last time period (the zombie arc) rather than the various eras displayed in the anime (concluding only one film will be made); or a random story that has nothing to do with the real plot, and characters that are highly different from their anime counterparts.
A small request: If there is a post of mine that you dislike, or want to discuss with me, please do so on my profile's comment page. I know it defeats the purpose of forums, but, I usually don't revisit forum threads after a post (unless it's my own) due to extreme laziness, and confusion. I enjoy discussing/ flame warring with others XD.

This could well work quite well. There's a pretty big difference between the game and the anime anyway, so a similarly sized change could happen between the anime and the live action. If done right, it'll be decent, and it has far more potential than a lot of anime adaptations.

I remember this at AX. The panel went into some more detail about the live-action movie, particularly that they wanted to cater to the fans. Supposedly the creators for this live-action are anime fans themselves and they understand what it means to create a movie adaptation that is faithful to the source (citing Dragonball Evolution as evidence of the opposite).

So if what they say is true and the movie creators will be faithful to the source, then only good things can come from this movie.

As for plot, I'm sure it'd likely follow the game plot of revenge and orcmen, compared to the anime which widened the timeline. But that just goes to show the differences in media formats and what they can cover. Can't wait for the manga, though. That I really want to see.
