IT director to helm live-action Attack On Titan movie

October 31st, 2018 by Marc Comments

It looks like IT director Andy Muschietti is going to literally go BIG after IT 2 hits cinemas next September as he has Andy Muschietti signed on to direct the live-action version of Attack On Titan.

And yes, we know there was a two part live-action movie released in Japan but we’ve heard very bad things.

Attack on Titan is a crazy popluar – and rather brilliant – manga series that has been massive as an animated show and the original comic from creator and artist Hajime Isayama and publishing company Kodansha who Warner Bros have just signed a deal with.

The story centres on a world overrun with giants who love nothign more than eating humans and the humans who live in massive walled cities to try to stay out of their clutches.

If done properly, this could be massive, Muschietti did fairly solid – not perfect but certainly solid – with Stephen King’s epic IT part one, so we’re certianly not pessimistic about it.

David Heyman (“Harry Potter,” “Fantastic Beasts”) is producing the film with Masi Oka (“Mega Man”) and Andy’s sister Barbara Muschietti (“It” and “Mama”).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
