Bleach Live Action Movie

Bleach Live Action MovieBleach is a quite popular Japanese manga (and anime) about a young man who battles evil spirits. So popular that it caught the attention of Warner Bros who have decided to buy the film rights to Bleach. So yes, there's gonna be a live-action Bleach Movie! Heard that director Peter Segal is in talks to produce.

If you're a hardcore fan of Bleach don't get too much excited about the announcement of a live action Bleach movie, because it sometimes take quite long before the project actually enter production (Akira is a stark example of project in limbo...).

"The story centers on a 15-year-old boy who has the ability to see ghosts and meets a female Soul Reaper, a member of an order that escorts the souls of the dead. A fight with an evil spirit causes the Reaper to transfer all her power to the boy, leaving her stranded in the human world and the boy taking over her job as a fighter of evil."

You may watch below the opening of the original Bleach anime series:


The recipe was right with the anime, but I'm not sure it will translate that well into a movie... It will require talent and determination (besides a lot of money) to make a successful adaptation of Bleach that will both kind of respect the original source material and be realistic and badass enough to appeal a larger public.
