Warners, Toho Team On Miike’s “Jojo”

Warner Bros. Pictures and Japanese studio Toho are teaming up to co-produce Takashi Miike’s live-action feature “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” (Jojo no Kimyo na Boken).

Based on Hirohiko Araki’s long-running comic, the story follows the Joestar family – a clan whose members possess various powers and skills they use to defeat supernatural foes.

The film will take much of its story from the comic’s fourth title ‘Diamond Is Unbreakable’ and Kento Yamazaki will star as the hero, Josuke Higashikata.

The film is targeting a Summer 2017 release.
