Iwaki Hitoshi's PARASYTE To Become Two Part Live Action Film In Japan
With its story of bizarre mutations and teen on teen violence it's not too hard to draw comparisons between Parasyte and the long stalled big screen adaptation of Charles Burns' Black Hole - which has the added benefit of throwing teen sex into the mix - and, no surprise, the movie never happened.
Well, bad news for New Line but (potentially) good news for fans, then, in that New Line's option has now expired, prompting Japanese major Toho to swoop in and scoop the rights with Always director (and special effects whiz) Yamazaki Takashi attached to direct a two part live action adaptation with Himizu star Sometani Shota in the lead. Part One is slated for release in 2014 with Part Two to arrive a year later.
