Attack On Titan - Live Action Film?

It looks like Warner Bros. is going to make a live-action Attack on Titan movie. According to Deadline, the studio is currently in negotiations for the feature film rights to the Hajime Isayama created property. They are also looking to bring on Harry Potter franchise producer David Heyman to develop the film, which is a smart choice as he's good at what he does.

Attack on Titan has become ridiculously popular over the past few years, and it has a huge fanbase. It was only a matter of time before a studio in Hollywood snatched up the rights to it.

I know some of the fans will complain, but let's be honest, it can't be any worse than the live-action Japanese version of Attack on Titan. That wasn't as awesome as I had hoped. But then there's a bit of news in the report that says the movie would be a remake of the Japanese film that was released in two parts.

I personally think the studio should just start from scratch and use the manga and anime as their main source material.

I'm cautiously excited about this because I love the franchise and I want to see a great live-action adaptation. Warner Bros. is also a solid studio that, for the most part, produces great, well-made films.

I think this could make a great film but I'm sure they will mess it up.
