Saint Seiya Getting Live-Action Film


Eiga.com is reporting that Toei Animation has reached an agreement with Chinese distribution company A Really Good Film Company, to co-produce a live-action film based on their classic Saint Seiya franchise. The film is being directed by Polish director Tomasz Bagiński, who previously directed the Academy Award-nominated short, Katedra. Toei Animation’s Yoshiyuki Ikezawa and Kozo Moroshita will serve as producer and executive producer, respectively.

Saint Seiya was previously released in North America as Knights of the Zodiac, which was admittedly one of the first anime, alongside Voltron, that I was initially exposed to. Though, it wouldn’t be until Dragonball Z, that it became an infatuation for me.
