To all Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood fans around the world, the latest news for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is finally announced and the widely popular manga and anime series is reportedly going to have a live-action big-screen adaptation this 2017. It is set to be on the big screens in Japan this coming summer of 2017, but the US release is still being planned.
It is also reported that Yamada Ryosuke will star as FMA’s leading man and beloved alchemist, Edward Elric. For people who is not familiar with Yamada Ryosuke, he is a member of the pop idol group Hey!Say!JUMP, and Yamada starred in the live-action adaptation of Assassination Classroom as Nagisa. The Fullmetal Alchemist live-action film will be directed by Fumihiko Sori.
The popular manga and anime series Fullmetal Alchemist is not the only one making the jump to live-action. We have seen many popular anime and manga from the past who succeeded in a live-action adaptation so I don’t have any doubts that FMA will be an epic live-action movie (if they succeed to nail the special effects of the alchemy) and I would love to see the action-packed adventures of one of the most loved brotherhood in anime world.The production will make heavy use of CGI to recreate the fantastic elements of the comic, such as Alphonse Elric’s armor, a perfect news to get the fans hyped for this live-action movie.Filming is scheduled to run from June to August of 2016 in Italy.
Otaku from United States who are Fullmetal Alchemist fans should not feel down for not hearing any updates of schedule of the FMA live-action movie since the American-made Death Note movie is already on the works which also includes Ghost in the Shell (seinen manga series) film starring Scarlett Johansson is scheduled to release on theaters next March.
I am a big fan of Fullmetal Alchemist and I can’t wait for the live-action movie. It’s something to look forward to this 2017. There are no further updates about the upcoming live-action movie but I will keep you updated once we have it.
