Studio Ghilbi Planned On Making Parasyte Film.

414Is it April 1st? It´s definitely not April 1st – yet this “news” feels like an unbelievable joke that might have turned into a reality if it weren´t for Hollywood.

In the Tokyo FM Podcast focusing on the release of the second part of the Parasyte live action film, Ghilbi co-founder Toshio Suzuki told Parasyte producer Genki Kawamura about how he and Miyazaki admired the original work, shortly after, Suzuki revealed that originally, they had plans to adapt the film before Madhouse got it, and that the only thing in their way was Hollywood´s New Line and their rights to develop a film, prior to this running out and the rights going back to Toho.

So what would have happend if the Japanese Walt Disney did get the rights to a body horror manga adaptation? personally, I feel like it would´ve been a lot more philosophical than the actual television series turned out to be, but, hey, t´is what it is, the world just wasn´t ready for this combination.
