Ed Zwick To Helm “Soul Reviver” Adaptation

“The Last Samurai” director Edward Zwick and producer Marshall Herskovitz are developing a live-action English-language adaptation of the 2012 Japanese manga “Soul ReViver” for Bedford Falls, Fields Corporation and All Nippon Entertainment Works.

The story follows Jin and Clara, two soul revivers who have the ability to move between the worlds of the living and the dead and to bring certain people back whose mission on Earth was not complete at the time of their demise.

Herskovitz and Zwick will write the screenplay which Zwick will direct. The pair recently produced Ron Howard’s “Heart Of The Sea” and Zwick recently directed the chess drama “Pawn Sacrifice”.
