A live action version of Kiki’s Delivery Service has been announced. The film will be directed by Juon (a.k.a. The Grudge) director Takashi Shimizu. Kiki will be portrayed by Fuka Koshiba, a 16 year old ice skater turned actress.
The film won’t necessarily be a remake of Miyazaki’s animated classic, but will instead be a new adaptation based on the original novel by Japanese author Eiko Kadono.
