The official website for Takashi Miike's live-action film adaptation of CAPCOM's Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban) videogame franchise announced on Thursday that the rock band Porno Graffitti (pictured below) will contribute the film's theme song. Porno Graffitti had previously worked on the soundtracks for Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, and Great Teacher Onizuka.
The site also posted a photograph of Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen's Noda, NANA's Nobu, Akihabara @ DEEP's Page) in his role as Phoenix Wright (Ryuichi Naruhodo), and it confirmed the February 11 release date for the film. Other cast members for the film include Takumi Saitō (RoboGeisha, Princess Princess D) as prosecutor Miles Edgeworth (Reiji Mitsurugi) and Mirei Kiritani (Arakawa Under the Bridge's Nino) as Maya Fey (Mayoi Ayasato).
The film will take place in a parallel Japan, where a large increase in harsh crimes has led to a new court system. Under this new system, the defense attorney and public prosecutor have three days to battle cases out in open court to determine guilt or innocence of the accused, placing priority on speed instead of thorough investigation.
The film studio Toei has said it plans to use a lot of computer graphics and visual effects in the courtroom scenes in order to make them more interesting, but it will still retain the games' signature lines such as "Igi Ari!" ("Objection!") and "Kurae!" ("Take That!")
ooh, i wonder what it'd sound like!
