The anime-to-live-action craze continues, as It director Andy Muschietti is set to helm the live-action adaptation of hit manga and anime Attack on Titan for Warner Bros. Muschietti is currently directing It: Chapter Two for next year.
Debuting in 2009 from creator Hajime Isayama, Attack on Titan is set in a world where large humanoids known as Titans roam the world, consuming anything in their path. The Titans have a rather iconic look thanks to resembling a human musculature system and having a rather voracious appetite. Standing between the Titans and the remnants of humanity who live in large walled off sections is the military. Series protagonist Eren Yeager and his friends join the Survey Corps to combat the Titans years after an attack left Eren's mother killed.
Attack on Titan has sold over 76 million copies in print and became one of the best selling manga series in history. Its anime adaptation has received critical acclaim, with the third season currently on winter hiatus with a return slated for April 2019. Attack on Titan joins fellow manga series My Hero Academia in receiving a live-action adaptation, the latter of which was announced last week.
