This year's 35th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine has confirmed that a live-action film adaptation of Kōji Matsumoto's Higanjima supernatural horror manga has been green-lit for release next summer. The manga is named after a fictional island where the brother of the main character (Akira Miyamoto) went missing two years ago. Miyamoto leads a search party of friends to the island and discovers that there are vampires and other creatures lurking on it.
There are over 250 magazine installments and 24 compiled volumes of the manga. Volcano High director Tae-Gyun Kim is overseeing the film project, while Tetsuya Oishi (live-action Death Note films) is scripting. The first public indication of a Japanese/Korean live-action film adaptation appeared in the exhibitor notes for the Micott & Basara production company at Tokyo International Anime Fair earlier this year.
