The live-action feature film, ‘Knights of the Zodiac’ is a little over a month away from finally being released in theaters by Sony Pictures. This is an adaptation of a fan-favorite manga that had jumped off the pages into an anime series and now, live-action.
‘Knights of the Zodiac’ is directed by Tomek Baginski based on a screenplay by Josh Campbell, Matt Stuecken, and Kiel Murray. This was inspired by the original stories by Masami Kurumanda and the characters in ‘Saint Seiya’.
At this year’s WonderCon, LRM Online‘s Manny Gomez had the opportunity to talk with several of the upcoming film’s stars. This included Madison Iseman, Diego Tinoco, Mark Dacascos, and Nick Stahl.
During our conversation, we got to know their characters and the inspiration behind them. Also, we chatted about the significance of a diverse cast in a live-action anime film. One other topic we also had to cover was their thoughts on the action sequences as they were led by the amazing Andy Cheng, who has worked on countless action films. You can check out the full interviews below!

Here is the synopsis for ‘Knights of the Zodiac’
Based on the international anime sensation, ‘Knights of the Zodiac’ brings the Saint Seiya saga to the big screen in live-action for the first time. Seiya (Mackenyu), a headstrong street teen, spends his time fighting for cash while he searches for his abducted sister. When one of his fights unwittingly taps into mystical powers he never knew he had, Seiya finds himself thrust into a world of warring saints, ancient magical training and a reincarnated goddess who needs his protection. If he’s to survive, he will need to embrace his destiny and sacrifice everything to take his rightful place among the Knights of the Zodiac.
We’ll have an a second piece with an exclusive conversation with star Famke Janssen soon!
