Live-Action Attack On Titan Film Coming from IT Director Andy Muschietti

With over 76 million copies sold, Attack on Titan written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama is one of the best selling manga series since it was released in 2009. The anime which is in its third season has become just as popular. The story is set in a world where humanity lives in cities that are “protected” by giant walls that keep out the gigantic humanoids that roam the world know as titans.

We know that Warner Bros. has been negotiating a deal to be able to bring this hit series to the big screen with the Japan based publishing company Kodansha and it looks like that deal got done on Monday. With that in place, Variety has learned that Warner Bros. has already found their director, Andy Muschietti who we know from his record breaking box office run of IT. The film based off the Stephen King novel made over $700 million worldwide.
