It's been reported that the film "Nintama Rantaro", which starred child actor Kato Seishiro, is in talks of receiving a Hollywood remake!
Written by†Amako Soubee, the original manga was first serialized 25 years ago†and it's been 18 years since NHK started its broadcast of the anime series. The recent live-action film adaptation has been receiving screening offers from 70 countries all over the world. Hollywood has also been showing interest in re-making the movie, and negotiations are currently underway.
Hearing this piece of news, Kato showed his anticipation by saying, "To have Japan's Nintama become the world's Nintama -- it's like a dream!"
The film was presented at the New York Asian Film Festival, which was held from July 1st to the 14th. A report on "Nintama Rantaro" was published on a variety magazine by a Wall Street journalist, which drew interest from Hollywood. The movie was released on August 23rd, and officials have been receiving nonstop inquiries from other countries.
Regarding the possibilities of the Hollywood remake, director Miike commented, "It came, just as I thought. The charm of 'Hagumi' is that it lies with the world's standards. If possible, I want them to leave the poop jokes."
