Japanese sci-fi lures Hollywood

Japanese advertising agency Dentsu and Hayakawa Publishing Corp. have entered into a live-action feature rights deal for Japanese sci-fi novels that have attracted the interest of "Transformers" producer Don Murphy and "Shoot 'Em Up" helmer Michael Davis. Angry Films principal Murphy plans to develop an adaptation of sci-fi author Issui Ogawa's novel "Tokisuna no Ou." In addition, Davis has agreed to direct and produce "Mardock Scramble," based on the popular novel by author Tow Ubukata.

The story is too old to be commented.
