Hmm... this has potential to not suck. I'll definitely be tempted to check this out. The Blood universe fascinates me.

I liked the original movie for what it was, and I liked the novel too (hopefully the rest will be released here), I look forward to this. Hopefully it goes to a screen near me. =)

Sounds like a good live-action adaption to see... I just hope it comes to a movie theater around here.
I wonder what it'll be rated... (As in PG/PG-13/R/NC-17)

My guess is a hard PG-13 (like "The Dark Knight" was).

How come the live-action version isn't listed in the Encyclopedia? Mad

I'll believe this is actually going to happen when I start seeing trailers for it in mainstream theaters.

Holy crap, 2,000 screens is a lot for a foreign film. They definitely have their marketing work cut out for them.

Well, this is suppose to be Gianna Jun's debut into Hollywood.

Anyway, ditto what Key said. I'll believe it when I see it. So hopefully after this news, something interesting will pop up soon. Like a teaser poster will keep me happy for a while lol.

I adored her in My Sassy Girl and Windstruck, so I hope this will be another role that will make me do the fangirl spazz dance.

Boy I don't know, even a hard PG-13 might be too gracious. That's just how violent and bloody (naturally Wink ) Blood is supposed to be. I mean don't get me wrong, I personally want a PG-13 because given my personal standards I will not see a live action R-rated movie unless it's edited for TV (yes I know, how hypocritical for me to watch R-rated level anime Anime smile + sweatdrop ) but I highly doubt it's going to happen.

I'd make the obvious joke here, but I'm sure this website already has to put up with it quite a lot.

...Meh, call me stupid for saying this but... I really couldn't find any entertainment in the original Blood. Blood+ may have been long and drawn out but...

I pretty much pefered the plot of the anime over the movie. I might see it though, just for the sake of my movie ticket money going somewhere useful this time.
