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.
Viz Media will publish the 15th volume of the manga in North America next month.
Update: More background information added.
