Warner Bros. hoping to snag the feature-film rights to Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan Warner Bros

Even if you're not a big watcher of anime, the chances are that you've likely heard of Attack on Titan, the popular manga written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama which was later turned into an even more popular anime series. Attack on Titan is set in a world where humanity resides solely in cities surrounded by enormous walls, put up as a defense against the Titans, a race of gigantic humanoids who seem to desire nothing more than to devour humans. The series, which is full of mystery, action, drama, as well as a good amount of gruesome imagery, has become very successful across the globe so it's only natural that Hollywood would attempt to give the series a Western spin.

There's not a whole lot of information at the moment, but Deadline has reported that Warner Bros. is currently in negotiations to snag up the feature-film rights to Attack on Titan. Should the deal close, the intent is to see the project developed by FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM producer David Heyman. A two-part ATTACK ON TITAN movie was released in Japan in 2015, which should give audiences a good idea of what to expect from Warner Bros.' potential remake, although it's probably safe to assume that the studio would set aside just a little more money for the project's effects budget. The second season of Attack on Titan, which has been a long time coming, will finally debut in April 2017.

What are your thoughts on Warner Bros. bringing Attack on Titan to the big-screen?
