posted on 2009-10-21 04:55 EDT
This year's 48th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing next Monday that Hideaki Sorachi's Gintama manga is being adapted in a movie. The announcement gives no further details except for the tagline of the feature article "Gintama Wasshoi Matsuri!!" ("Wasshoi" is a traditional rallying cry at Japanese festivals, or matsuri.) The international movie studio Warner Brothers registered the Internet domain name Gintama-movie.com earlier this month. The domain currently redirects to the main page of Warner Brothers in Japan.
Update: More background information added.
