Bleach‘s impressive 15-year manga run may have ended this week, but fans haven’t yet seen the last of Ichigo Kurosaki and his ridiculously powerful friends.
Weekly Shōnen Jump (the publication behind Bleach) has confirmed that the popular supernatural action series will be getting a live-action adaptation.
Few details about this upcoming film have been released, but it has been announced that Sota Fukushi (Kamen Rider) will star as Ichigo Kurosaki. Shinsuke Sato (Gantz) is set to direct, and it has been confirmed from the horse’s mouth that Bleach creator Tite Kubo will be heavily involved in the production of the film.
The film is scheduled for a 2018 release.
Do you think it’s possible to condense 15 years of action in film? Let us know in the comments!
