Brad Pitt's Plan B to Adapt Manga Series, Miki Falls

Brad Pitt's Plan B to Adapt Manga Series, Miki Falls


While Brad Pitt's been busy releasing photos of his new babies, his production company, Plan B, has picked up the rights to a four-volume manga series by Mark Crilley titled Miki Falls. Variety has more details:

Story chronicles the final year of high school for Miki Yoshida, the series’ protag who tries to befriend handsome new student Hiro Sakurai but is met with resistance. Stubborn Miki, however, refuses to take no for an answer, which leads to a surprising revelation about the secretive young man.

The writer they've tapped to adapt the books for the big screen is Sera Gamble, a writer and producer on Supernatural and a finalist on that filmmaker competition show Project Greenlight (remember that show?).

I'm curious to check out this series; it sounds like a cool project with a strong female lead, which is something we could always use more of. I wonder who could play this little miss Miki. . .

Wow, B-Rad sure knows how to make money. This is a good idea for people who love those series. Zhang Ziyi, naw she's a little old for a high school character.

I vote for Rinko Kikuchi... I know, a little too old, but she's so young looking!
