It Chapter 1 and 2 director Andy Muschietti (pictured right) has signed on to direct an adaptation of the manga series Attack on Titan. We expect the film to be live-action, although this has not been explicitly confirmed.
Muschietti has proven himself to be a strong force in the horror world and I think an Attack on Titan adaptation would be in good hands. Fans of the manga know that the action is brutal and features gory scenes certainly NSFW or for kids. If this adaptation is to keep to the spirit of the original material, surely it would have to be R-rated.
Attack on Titan is set in a future where humans live in constant threat of giants called Titans. In typical manga fashion there is plenty of emotion and intense action, and it’s no surprise to learn that Attack on Titan is one of the best-selling manga series.
David Heyman will produce the film with Masi Oka and Barbara Muschietti.
