Coming in 2007
The most anticipated movie of all time...
Screenplay by Josh Olson
Josh Olson, who adapted "A History of Violence", is now working on Naoki Urasawa's best-selling Japanese manga Monster!
Set in Germany 1990's, Doctor Tenma chases Johan, a boy he saved 10 years earlier who has become a heartless monster.
It will be interesting to see how they compress the whole story down considering that the TV series is 30+ hours. I hope they keep Tenma's sidekick Dieter and the quirky inspector Lunge. I also wonder how much they will focus on the author of the children's books.
Plan on this being the #1 movie of 2007 since it will be up against stuff like "28 Weeks Later" and "Day of the Dead" (Please someone, tell the producers we are sick of bad zombie sequels.) Oh yea, there's also a "Hellboy 2", "Spiderman 3", and "Indiana Jones 4" coming out in 2007 ... so no one in America has an original idea?
