Tim Burton Into “Mai, The Psychic Girl”

Japanese manga “Mai, The Psychic Girl” has apparently been added to director Tim Burton’s upcoming film slate says Latino Review.

Kazuya Kudo’s comic follows a young teenage girl with psychic powers being pursued by a shady Government-back syndicate bent on world domination through control of psychics.

Burton had a film adaptation in preparation long ago but it never came together and he has only now been able to reacquire the film rights from Sony Pictures. Burton is apparently supervising work on the screenplay.
