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?

"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the monster: and they worshipped the monster, saying, Who is like unto the monster? who is able to make war with him?"

"Look at me. Look at me! The monster inside of me has grown this big."

I hope the TV series gets licensed in the US before the movie comes out. The manga is already licensed so the anime might not be far behind. On the down side the anime might get licensed before its done being fan subbed :(

Since the TV Series is already finished in Japan, I don't think fansubbing will stop. Judging by how long it takes to get a series on DVD after it's licensed, Monster will most likely not come out until after the movie. When it does, we'll have a party and watch it!
The first volume of the manga will be available this spring.
Title: "Naoki Urasawa's Monster: Herr Dr Tenma"
