I wish we could've gotten a visual for it to judge it on.

Besides the fact that the show is pretty damn unlogical and (at least at the beginning) stupid as hell, and the fact that they're casting skinny japanese people to it, it'll flop like titanic. No, not the movie...

I would agree with you if it was an adaptation of anywhere from part 1-3, but this is part 4 where Araki's style starts to draw his characters looking more skinnier and flamboyant. You could see the difference in artstyle by the end of DiU.

Maybe, but the characters are pretty damn square-ish regardless. This is something japanese people lack in their physique.

Is it just me or do I have the feeling that this one will flop badly? I can't imagine something like this working well,at all. I haven't read the manga and have seen very little of the anime,I can't imagine something like "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure" working in live-action. Only animated. This'll probably be one of the biggest flops in Japanese movie history. Count on it.

I don't understand how the series is "stupid as hell" and "unlogical". If I know something about the show, is that its story is both entertaining and with a penchant of solving battles with strategy, beside being truly weird in a fantastic way.

I *just* managed to stop my head from exploding and my body from twisting into fantastic shapes when I read "Jojo film adaptation directed by Takashi Miike," so now I've collected my thoughts and can comment. Especially now that I've cleaned that white stuff off of my monitor that somehow got there when I read "Jojo film adaptation directed by Takashi Miike."

I guess there's no good reason to be optimistic. An effective Jojo film adaptation would, in my opinion, be about 2, 3, or 4 hours long, would need a Hollywood budget and resources, handmade gore SFX instead of that CGI crap, an international cast (glaring reason #1 that Part 4 is being adapted over others, rather than the anime), and finally, a director with the singular vision to re-interpret the story in his own way and bring a different tone to it, while also remaining faithful to the storyline itself.

This movie will meet none of these qualifications and will likely just be trying to ape the manga's style and imagery 100%, with CGI effects. Miike is a great filmmaker, but these days he has conformed to mainstream Japanese film sensibilities, and this movie will feel like a typical Japanese manga adaptation film, I would think.

Nevertheless, with memories of Full Metal Yakuza, Visitor Q, Happiness of the Katakuris, Ichi the Killer, and the episode he directed for Masters of Horror that was so nasty it shocked Mick Garris and the heads at Showtime, I will be curious to see what Miike does with Jojo.
