20th Century Boys Live Action Movie

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys is to be adapted into a live-action movie with a 2008 release.

The story will revolve around a "Book of Revelations" written by the boy Kenji and his friends, who dreamed of a hero who would stand up to an evil organization bent on destroying the world, during the era of rapid economic development in Japan, 30 years later, a series of catastrophes occur exactly as they were described in the book, setting the world off on the path to extinction.

No other information is currently available, however the official web-site states that this is "Chapter One" of the series.

The manga had been running in Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine since 1999 up until this year, when it went on hiatus, and the final chapter of the story is set to be released in 2007.

Thanks Kenji
