Takashi Miike, most well known for his unsettling films Ichi: The Killer and Audition, is being put behind the helm of the live action Pheonix Wright movie. While I have never seen a movie by him in the same light hearted fashion that I associate with Pheonix Wright I have seen him do comedic films before.
Takashi Miike is one of the most experienced directors around having directed around fifty four films since 1991 when he started. The movie is going to be foriegn language of course and may not come out in America, but I am sure fan subs will rear their head soon after it’s japanese release in spring 2012. I am incredibly excited to see both Takashi Miike doing a light hearted movie and Pheonix Wright come to life on the silver screen. For more information on casting check after the jump.

Umineko is a series of visual novels noted for their abstract characters, absurd storylines and general perpelxing insanity. The series have spawned Light Novels, Animé, Manga, and now it’s own doujin video game. The original version of Umineko was conceived as an indie PC fighting game displayed at last years Otakon (The same way that Melty Blood came into fruition) and it was shown to be one of the highlights of the event as the developers managed to take the characters everyone knew and loved and placed them in a fighting game with amazing animation, a framerate for a 2D fighter not seen since Street Fighter 3 or Garou: Mark of the Wolves and in general, all the components of a very awesome game.
What’s even better is that Alchemist (Creators of GalGun AKA Game of the Year 2010) confirmed that they are working on a 360 port of the Doujin featuring three new characters (Rosa Ushiromiya, George Ushiromiya and Jessica Ushiromiya), New scenarios and endings that will expand of the mythos of the series as well as Xbox Live compatability for smoother online play. No release date has been specified although fingers crossed for a region free release (If you can’t wait for that, Arcana Heart 3 came out on NA PSN for $30 if you can’t wait for a solid 2D fighting game, get to it!)
