posted on by Egan Loo
AMG Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it will release the live-action film Neko Atsume no Ie (Neko Atsume's Home) next year. The film is based on Hit-Point's hit smartphone app Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector.
The film follows Sakumoto, a novelist who won a new writer award when he was younger and became a best-selling author. However, he has been dealing with writer's block lately. To turn over a new leaf, he moves to a tranquil new home, but he still remains downbeat. One day when he was at his wit's end, he looks out into the garden, where a cat shows up.
Although Sakumoto tries talking to the cat, it goes away, and Sakumoto is downbeat again. That evening, he places dry cat food in a corner of the garden. The following morning, the food is gone, and all of a sudden, Sakumoto is intrigued.
Atsushi Itou (live-action Densha Otoko television series, Flying Colors/Birigal) is starring in the film, and Masatoshi Kurakata (Railways Ai o Tsutaerarenai Otona-tachi e, Game Center CX the Movie 1986 Mighty Bomb Jack) is directing. Yūji Nagamori planned and wrote the screenplay, and Mediand is producing.
