Sori Fumihiko who worked on the Ping Pong Live Action Film will direct the movie. One of the great news that we have got or you can say a word of assurance from the director of the Fullmetal Alchemist Live Action Film itself that he want to follow the original script of the Manga. This is what Sori Fumihiko said in an interview :-
“I want to create a style that follows the original manga as much as possible. The cast is entirely Japanese, but the cultural background is Europe. However, it’s a style that doesn’t represent a specific race or country.”
Sori also said that he won’t reveal how Alphonse Elric will be presented in the movie but first and foremost his confident that the fans will like the character and will be satisfied by it. The Fullmetal Alchmist Live Action Film will be adapted from the Manga written by “Arakawa” who first published the Manga in the year 2001 in Square Enix’s Monthly Shounen Gangan till the year 2010. The Manga has inspired two Anime series first is Fullmetal Alchemist which follows half of the original story line from the Manga and then moves forward with its own story, which is kinda like Akame ga kill Anime series. You can say that Akame ga Kill adapted the method from Fullmetal Alchemist Anime Series and the second series of the Anime “Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood,” which follows the original storyline of the Manga till the end.
The film has slated its first premier in Winter 2017. So far we know that, the film began its shooting in the month of June in Italy and wrapped up in Japan in second half of August.
