Berserk Adaptation Coming With HUGE Names Attached?





Berserk Adaptation Coming With HUGE Names Attached?It was many years ago when I first became familiar with Kentaro Miura's anime Berserk. Actually I was playing Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage on the Sega Dreamcast. A violent warrior swinging a giant sword against hordes of demons? I was hooked! Perfect fodder for a movie.

According to IMDb (so take this with a grain of salt as they're rarely reliable), a movie is coming in 2017 with an impressive list of directors... Christophe Gans (Silent Hill, Brotherhood of the Wolf), Oliver Stone (JFK, Platoon, Natural Born Killers) and Nicolas Winding Refn (Only God Forgives, Drive, Bronson) - apparently all collaborating on the project which was originally conceived as a manga from Kentaro Miura.

Stuart Beattie (I, Frankenstein, 30 Days of Night, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) worked on the screenplay.

In the adaptation, “The Epic of Guts, a dangerous barbarian joins forces with a mercenary group named ‘The Band of the Hawk’, lead by the charismatic Griffith, and fights with them as they battle their way into the royal court and their final doom.

Expect more news soon.

Considering how popular stuff like A GAME OF THRONES is, it could be happening. Little disappointed that it's going to be just another adaptation of the Golden Age storyline which was already adapted into a TV series and trilogy of animated movies in Japan.

Hell yeah I loved that game. I'm sure if I played it today it wouldn't hold up, but it was my first exposure to Berserk so I still hold it in high regard.
