Madhouse studio has revealed at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 that directors Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time or "TokiKake," Digimon Adventure: Bokura no War Game), Tsutomu Mizushima (xxxHOLiC, Genshiken), Masayuki Kojima (Monster, The Piano Forest), and Satoshi Nishimura (Trigun, Hajime no Ippo) are all developing films with the studio. Madhouse provided few details on the unnamed projects from Hosoda and Mizushima. However, the studio did preview an apparent image of a dog (see picture at right) for Kojima's next project and said it would be a "creative milestone in international cultural exchange." Finally, the studio all but confirmed earlier reports of Nishimura's involvement in the Trigun movie by saying he will be dealing with "The Human Typhoon, again."
