Rumors about an Ace Attorney movie started about a week ago, when director Takashi Miike spoke of his next film in an interview for The Huffington Post, saying:
"It is a very light comedy that I am filming now, a court drama, based on a video game, the Nintendo game DS."
Aaand of course the fans (myself included) went wild, because, you know, there are only so many Nintendo DS games involving court cases. Shortly after Takashi Miike’s interview, the film was officially announced, much to my excitement.
So… who’s gonna be in it? Where are they filming? What’s the story? We’ve got answers. Sort of."
