Saint Seiya live action film

The Eiga.com news website reported on Friday that a Hollywood live-action film based on Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya manga has been green-lit. Toei Animation and Chinese distribution company A Really Good Film Company (ARGF) are co-producing the film.

Polish director Tomasz Bagiński, who previously directed the Academy Award-nominated short animation "Katedra," is directing the film. Toei Animation's Yoshiyuki Ikezawa and Kozo Morishita will serve as producer and executive producer, respectively.

How many of you are willing to bet that the story will skip right to the Sanctuary Arc?

Also, I really don't know how anyone can properly pull this off without a good amount of budget and somebody who actually knows the inside-out of the source material and also knows how to change and adapt it for a live-action film. I mean, there are so many stupid things in Saint Seiya that they shouldn't just put them in live-action movie. Bring out the good stuffs and leave the bad stuffs for the anime/manga only.

Like another Legend of Sanctuary? The big problem with Saint Seiya's arcs is that all are episodic so the CGI film tried to change some parts like when Aiolia became hypnotized or when Seiya, Shun and Ikki face Milo and Shura at the same time.

I'm not too confident about this. My reaction to first hearing this was this




Still, at least Toei is working too.

EDIT: Something I am interested is how are they gonna design the Cloths. Will be they be based on the ones from the late Shingo Araki, the next ones by Michi Himeno or something new.

I actually liked Legend of Sanctuary despise its flaws (Shocker, I know, I'll give you all a few seconds to let it settle... Ok? Ok...) Hopefully, this will be at least as enjoyable as LoS.

Same.

LoS was a very flawed film, but it was a lot of fun, and absolutely beautifully animated to boot.
