Miyazaki to Direct Howl?

Miyazaki to replace Hosoda...

Naohisa Inoue, the artist best known for his impresive pictures for Whisper of the Heart, has said on his web diary that Miyazaki will direct Howl's Moving Castle.

Excerpted from his web diary:
"On the 30th, I had a talk with Miyazaki at the Ghibli Museum. He told me that he would direct Howl, and he asked me to draw imageboards by the coming fall for the next short cartoon film to be screened at the museum."

In June we reported that it seemed that Mamoru Hosoda, who was supposed to direct Howl's Moving Castle, was no longer working on the project.

Studio Ghibli recently closed it's doors for several months. According to Toshio Suzuki, studio manager and producer, the closure was to allow Ghibli employees a chance to relax and return to work in February 2003 to start work on Miyazaki's next project.
