http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/03/29/fullmetal-alchemist-live-action-movie-announced This is a terrible idea 1) Japan continues the trend of pop stars and idols instead of hiring actual god damn actors 2) FMA takes place in a world that is essentially Europe with Ed being a shining example of as white as a person can get. FMA is definitely a project that would be better handled by Hollywood. Majority of anime adaptations are god damn awful. Kenshin films were amazing but they were also very difficult to fuck up. That kind of film is right up Japan's alley. The production value doesn't need to be that high and the aesthetics fit Japan. Arakawa has to be pissed off, I know I would be. Same shit as Black Butler and Attack on Titan. I also can't imagine Japanese fans will like this idea either.
