It seems that a lot of manga, video games, and anime are getting live-action adaptations, and the latest one is none other than Hideaki Sorachi’s Gintama. According to leaked images from the upcoming 31st issue of Weekly Shounen Jump! Magazine, the wacky parody manga will really be getting its own live-action movie.
The same issue also confirmed who will be playing Gintoki, and it will be none other than Lupin III star, Shun Oguri. It also confirmed that live-action Hentai Kamen director, Yuichi Fukuda, will be directing the film.
Previously, the domain name, Gintama-Film.com, was registered to Warner Bros. Entertainment. This sparked rumors of the live-action Gintama movie, and as it turns out, those rumors really are true.
