CONFIRMED: Shimizu Directing Live Action KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE
What those who seized on the Ghibli statement failed to appreciate is that Kiki doesn't belong to Ghibli and they don't need to have anything to do with it.
And so, today both Sports Nippon and Sports Hochi are confirming the news. The live action version is coming, Shimizu is directing, and sixteen year old figure skater Koshiba Fuka has been cast as the lead. Japanese reports indicate that the live action version will go deeper into the story than did the Ghibli version. While the previous animated feature adapted the first novel of the series this new live action version will use material from the first two entries.
