“Arrival” scribe Eric Heisserer has been set to pen an English-language live-action remake of the hit anime feature “Your Name” for Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot.
The sci-fi love story centers on a teenage boy and girl from different parts of Japan who discover they can swap bodies and are separated by time as well as space.
When an impending comet landfall threatens one of their towns, they must find a way to meet and stop it from happening.
Makoto Shinkai wrote and directed the original which is the highest grossing anime film at the worldwide box office, taking in a whopping $355 million.
Abrams, Genki Kawamura and Lindsey Weber will produce the remake.
