posted on by Karen Ressler
Variety reported on Monday that Warner Bros. finalized a deal with Japanese publisher Kodansha to produce a feature film based on Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga. Andy Muschietti (It) is on board to direct.
David Heyman (Harry Potter), Masi Oka (Mega Man), and Andy's sister Barbara Muschietti (It) are producing the film.
Isayama launched the manga in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009. Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in print in English, and Crunchyroll also publishes the manga in English digitally as new chapters are published in Japan. The manga has inspired three anime series since April 2013 — the second part of the third season will debut in April 2019.
