Warner Bros... Wants Bleach?

The Hollywood Reporter reveals word that Warner Bros. “is in the process of securing the movie rights to” Tite Kubo’s supernatural action manga Bleach. Peter Segal, director of movies including Get Smart & Anger Management, would produce a prospective American Bleach motion picture in collaboration with his Callahan Filmworks co-executive Michael Ewing, and English language manga publisher Viz Media.

Warner bros has already acquired American re-make rights to the Akira and Death Note manga series and Ninja Scroll (Jubei Ninpucho) anime franchise, although none of these projects have yet approached filming.

Acording to Director Peter Segal (Get Smart, Tommy Boy) is negotiating to serve as a producer (apparently he wants to take on more darker, action-fueled material) in a story focusing on a 15-year-old boy who can see ghosts. He meets a female Soul Reaper (who escorts the "souls of the dead"), but a fight with an evil spirit causes the Reaper to transfer her powers to the boy, leaving her stranded in the human world and the boy with her old job as a fighter of evil.

This Was quite shocking ... i never thought that warren bros would want to get their hands on Bleach anime... But to see live action movie of bleach would be awesome ... if it was made as it supposed to be.
