Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Film’s Website Hosts Countdown
The official website for the live-action film of Hiromu Arakawa‘s Fullmetal Alchemist manga is currently hosting a countdown that will end at midnight JST on Wednesday (Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. EST). The site launched the countdown on Friday.
The movie’s filming began in Italy in early June, and wrapped up in Japan in the second half of August. The film will open in Japan in winter 2017. Fumihiko Sori (live-action Ping Pong) is directing the film, and it stars Ryōsuke Yamada (Hey! Say! JUMP member and live-action Assassination Classroom‘s Nagisa) as Edward Elric. The film tells the story in one complete film. Edward is being aged up to 20 years old; he was originally 15 in the manga.
The Italian newspaper La Nazione published three photographs from the film’s set in June.
