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.
The game has been downloaded over 19 million times worldwide since it debuted in October 2014.
