CLAMP and Production I.G’s anime series Blood-C is the next to get the live-action treatment. A film adaptation was announced on the Asura Girl Project website, with a Japanese premiere set for early fall.
The Blood-C movie will have an original story that follows a conflict between villagers and Japan’s Special Higher Police Forces prior to World War II. Shutaro Oku (Persona 3 and 4 stage plays, 2015’s Blood-C: The Last Mind play) is lined up to direct, with scripts by Jun’ichi Fujisaku (scripts for the 2011 Blood-C TV anime and stage play).
The cast includes a few actors returning from the Blood-C: The Last Mind stage play, including Kaede Aono, Ryūnosuke Matsumura, Kanon Miyahara, Eiji Takigawa, Keisuke Minami, and more.
