The famous Manga and Anime that many of us grew up on, will finally be adapted for a live action film set for 2018. The Bleach Live Action Film will be produced by Warner Brothers and directed by Shinsuke Sato (Gantz, I Am a Hero, and Library Wars). Shinsuke has also recently been cast as the director of the Live Action film adaptation for the manga Laughing Under The Clouds, which will be released in 2017. Let's see how he does on both of these adaptations.
The only cast announced thus far has been the actor playing the orange haired, fiery main lead. Ichigo Kurosaki will be played by Fukushi Sota. His experience is noteworthy as he has played in over 35 films & dramas, and in many of those he was one of the main leads. Interesting enough, he will also be the main lead in the Laughing Under The Clouds live action adaptation.
The specific plot of the film has not yet been released. However, here is the plot that the Manga and Anime generally follow:
"Kurosaki Ichigo has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Kuchiki Rukia, a Soul Reaper, and a member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family, but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits, and along with Rukia, who is slowly regaining her powers, it's Ichigo's job to both protect the innocent from Hollows and to help the spirits themselves find peace."
