Phoenix Wright Movie in the Works from Director Takashi Miike

Game Podunk Editor Marcus Estrada writes, "Phoenix Wright is a very intelligent game, but is much goofier than Yakuza - at least until Yakuza Of the End. Miike is well known in the US for his films Audition and Ichi the Killer. What's incredible about both these films is how intense and violent they both are. While there is murder and blood in the Phoenix Wright series, it still seems like a mostly odd fit. Miike doesn't do "typical" blood or violence. He goes all out. He is able to push you to the edge of your seat, make you grind your teeth, and generally just feel extremely uncomfortable. Is this what Capcom wants to do to their fans?"

I liked his Yakuza movie.

The man is a great Director!
Audition and Ichi the Killer were freaking awesome!
And his latest movie, "13 Assassins" is a master piece!
American Director should take a few notes from this man.

OMG I remember The Happiness of the Katakuris! I haven't seen that movie in years. Possibly the strangest movie-watching experience I have ever had in my life.

Miike's a great director, so it'll be interesting to see how he deals with Phoenix Wright. Definitely not his usual style of film.
