Takashi Miike adapting video game Phoenix Wright?

13 assassins

Audition and 13 Assassins director Takashi Miike has revealed that he’s currently shooting a court drama based on a Nintendo DS game.

Though he doesn’t explicitly name the game, online dot-connectors are saying that it could be Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

“It is a very light comedy that I am filming now,” Miike told The Huffington Post , “a court drama, based on a video game, the Nintendo game DS.”

Miike wouldn’t be drawn on the project’s name, but the fact that it’s light-hearted and based in a courtroom strongly hints that it could be Phoenix Wright that he’s making.

Which would be a real departure for the director, whose last film – 13 Assassins – was a historical drama filled with ravishing images and brilliant bust-ups.

Even if it turns out that Miike isn’t adapting Wright , it’s at least interesting to learn that he’s working on a court drama. Wonder how many swords will be involved this time.
