The trio last teamed for 2010's "Confessions," a psycho-drama that earned $50 million and was selected as Japan's entry for the foreign language Oscar race.

"Titans" focuses on the survivors of an attack on Earth by human-devouring giants.

Hajime Isayama's six-comicbook series has sold 6.6 million copies since its launch in the Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2009.

Nakashima is still casting but plans to begin shooting in spring. Toho will release "Titans" in 2013.

Nakashima said that the pic, which will require extensive CGI, will be "the most expensive Japanese film ever," but did not name a figure. Hayao Miyazaki's "Ponyo" is reputedly the country's highest-budget film to date, coming in at $34 million in 2008.

Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan Manga to Get Film in Fall 2013

Quote:
The email newsletter for Kodansha's Comic Plus members confirmed on Wednesday that a film adaptation of Hajime Isayama's Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) manga will open in Fall of 2013. More details will be provided in future postings of the newsletter.

Hajime Isayama launched Shingeki no Kyojin in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009. The story follows the life of humans after giants suddenly appear and take over the entire world. To keep out these invaders who eat humans for food, the humans erect huge walls, but at the cost of their freedom in the outside world.

The manga has become a sleeper hit, selling over 3 million copies since last year. The fifth volume shipped in August.

The official website of Itako, a city north of Tokyo, posted an October 3 casting call for extras on the latest film by award-wining director Tetsuya Nakashima (Confessions, Kamikaze Girls, Paco and the Magical Picture Book). According to the casting call, the crew is looking for 80 "healthy male and female" extras "to play people fleeing in panic from 'giants' who suddenly appear in a peaceful shopping district."

Still, you have to say that it looks quite impressive.

Keep an eye out for the show's Spring 2013 premiere.

The series is an intricately detailed and disturbing manga concerning how a human society reacts to the sudden onslaught of voracious giants. Kodansha began releasing it in North America this year.

Tetsuya Nakashima, who directed the nearly-Oscar-nominated adaptation of Confessions and the cult favorite adaptation of Kamikaze Girls, has a live action adaptation of Attack on Titan slated for fall 2013.

This is going to be really good. I've been reading the manga for a year and I can honestly say it's one of the best out there right now. It avoids usual Shounen tropes with a very raw environment.
