'Tokyo Ghoul' is Getting a Live-Action Film

"Tokyo Ghoul," the hit supernatural manga by Sui Ishida, is being developed in Japan as a live-action film.

The announcement was made this week courtesy of a wrap-around band on the seventh volume of the sequel "Tokyo Ghoul:re."

Debuting in 2011, "Tokyo Ghoul" centers on Ken Kaneki, a college student who barely survives an attack by a ghoul, a flesh-eating supernatural creature that lives among humans in secret. Taken to the hospital, Ken undergoes a surgery that transforms him into a half-ghoul.

The manga, which ended in 2014, has inspired light novels, an anime series, a pair of OVAs, video games and the aforementioned sequel.

No additional details about the adaptation have been announced.
