Mandalay Pictures Licenses FMP Film!

One of  my favorite mecha anime with a twist  Sousuke Sagara and Chidori Kaname in live action? and what will happen if  its americanized? questions will be answered after talks is closed, and trailers/posters are out. Lets wait and see minna san(everyone).

The Mandalay Pictures production studio has licensed the film rights to Shoji Gatoh‘s Full Metal Panic! high school action comedy light novels. The story centers around a brusque young sergeant named Sousuke Sagara who must protect an assertive high school girl named Chidori Kaname by masquerading (somewhat unsuccessfully) as a high school student himself. Actor Zac Efron (High School Musical, Hairspray, 17 Again) is reportedly discussing the project.

Shikidouji illustrated the original novels, and Retsu Tateo adapted them into manga form (pictured at right). Four television anime series, several spinoff manga, and a video special have since released. ADV Manga released both the first manga series and the Full Metal Panic: Overload! manga spinoff in North America. ADV Films and Funimation have split the North American DVD releases of the different anime series between the two of them.
