Live-Action Attack on Titan Film Opens Casting Call for Titans

posted on by Eric Stimson
Shooting planned for this month or next month in Tokyo and Kanto area

The upcoming Attack on Titan live-action film is now seeking "men of medium height and build" to star as the film's human-hungry titans. Many have responded to the casting call with excitement; others are more apprehensive, noting that Titans are, of course, naked.

The casting call is ongoing, and the application form can be reached here (Japanese only). Shooting is scheduled for around early this month to the end of July in Tokyo and the northern Kanto region.

A JTB tour on June 7 took participants to the movie set to star as extras, while others filled out the standard form on the film's website. Many applied but didn't make the cut. Several of the applicants posted on the Internet that they were rejected.

The Attack on Titan film is scheduled for release in 2015. 23-year-old Haruma Miura is starring in the live-action film of Hajime Isayama's popular manga Attack on Titan manga.

The manga has inspired four spinoff manga, and a 25-episode television anime version which is currently airing on Adult Swim.
