Wrath of the Titans Writer Discusses Live-Action Bleach

Dan Mazeau trying to avoid what happened to live-action Dragonball

Wrath of the Titans screenwriter Dan Mazeau discussed his upcoming projects, including the live-action adaptation of Tite Kubo's manga Bleach. Mazeau explained that both getting the rights and the scriptwriting itself were a long process for Bleach: "But early on we set down withTite Kubo the creator and the publisher of the series, and we had a long meeting, making sure we're respectful to the property. Nobody wants to, well… Let's just say that if you enjoyed [the live-action] Dragon Ball Z movie, that's great, but I thought it was a noble effort that ultimately didn't succeed. That's what we're trying to avoid. We want to make sure this movie lives up to what the manga is."

He added, "I'm currently working on Bleach and the idea is to set it in Japan and really be respectful to the source material. It's an amazing story. I've been shorthanding it as an 'action-adventure Sixth Sense,' but obviously on a bigger canvas than that. So I'm incredibly excited about that. It's a good one.”

Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.

I would feel differently about this project... if it were Japanese-produced.

However, it's just a matter of fact that Hollywood production/special effects in America are on a different level.

There would need to be a demonstration of nearly Peter-Jackson-on-Tolkien levels of dedication to the material for me to personally feel ok about this or to consider seeing it myself, and that's as a non-fan of the series. DNW
