Live Action Tokyo Ghoul Film Releases Teaser Image!

Ever since the June 2016 announcement that there would be a live action adaptation of the popular manga and anime series, Tokyo Ghoul, fans have been eagerly awaiting any new information about the project. If you are one such fan, today happens to be your lucky day. On Monday, December 13, the Twitter account for the film, @tkg_movie, shared a teaser image depicting the film’s protagonist, Ken Kaneki, and his one-eyed ghoul mask, along with the release window for the film.

The live action Tokyo Ghoul film will see Masataka Kuboto (Death Note, 13 Assassins) take on the role of Ken Kaneki, the college student turned half-ghoul who not only has to fit in with the ghouls and hide his identity from humans, but also has to consume human flesh in order to survive. It will also star Fumika Shimizu (Kamen Rider Fourze) as Tōka Kirishima, Yū Aoi (Rurôni Kenshin) as Rize Kamishiro, Nobuyuki Suzuki (The Kirishima Thing) as Kōtarō Amon, and Yo Oizumi (Spirited Away) as Kureo Mado. Tokyo Ghoul is being directed by Kentarō Hagiwara and is expected to be released in Japan in Summer 2017.

How about live action adaptations in general? Are you a fan? What about the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film? Think it’s going to be good?
