Live Action FullMetal Alchemist Coming 2017

Film Will Be Shot In Europe

Live-Action adaptations of popular anime have a rocky history (to say the least), but that doesn’t stop the film industry from continuing to try (bless their hearts).

Fullmetal Alchemist will now be getting the live-action treatment, and it looks like there’s going to be some pretty serious effort going into making it good.  Can this movie possibly break the mold?  We can only hope.

Get more details after the break!


A recent release announced that the live action Fullmetal Alchemist will come to theaters in 2017 around winter. Unlike the Attack of Titan movie tragedy that we encountered last year, the film will be produced in a serious matter. The nominated for best director Fumihiiko Sori highly desires the film to be as close to the original manga as possible. Since the story setting takes place after the European Industrial revolution, the whole crew will travel to Europe to start shooting, and begin from Italy in next month June, then other European countries and so on.

Besides the realistic background setting, the featured cast members will be all Japanese, and pretty much most of them are the current A-list actor membersthat are often shown on Japanese TV Drama. The main actor will be Ryosuke Yamada as the main character Edward Elric, who starred in a 2013 TV dramaThe Case Files of Young Kindaich, and last year’s Assassination Classroom. As for other popular members, Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell, Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang, and Yasuko Matsuyuki as Lust are also joining the team.
