The official website for the Psycho-Pass anime announced on Friday that the film will run in more than 100 theaters in Japan. Such a large-scale theatrical run is uncommon for a film adaptation of a late-night anime. The film will premiere on January 9.
The website also announced that the original television series' chief director Katsuyuki Motohiro is reprising his role for the film, while Naoyoshi Shiotani is again directing. Makoto Fukami (Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden, Ōsama-tachi no Viking) and Gen Urobuchi are writing the film's screenplay. Naoyuki Onda (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc, Hiiro no Kakera) is designing the film's characters and serving as chief animation director. Production I.G is animating the film.
The television anime's second season premiered on Wednesday.
