Director Nakashima Leaves Live-Action Attack on Titan Film

Film journalist Hiroo Otaka reported on Wednesday that Tetsuya Nakashima (Kamikaze Girls, Confessions, Paco and the Magical Picture Book) has left his position as director of the live-action Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) film. According to film distributor TOHO, Nakajima had considerable creative differences on the scriptwriting and other matters, and as such, he left the project.

Publisher Kodansha is preparing to resume the project, although the new director for the film is still undecided. The movie is still expected to be released in 2014 or later. (Kodansha had reported in 2011 that the film would open in Japan in Fall of 2013 or later.) (Attack on Titan, Culture, Live-Action)
