Your Name Live Action Adaptation New Director Announced
Your Name Live Action Adaptation New Director Announced. According to the report, Carlos López Estrada, who worked on the Disney film “Raya and the Last Dragon” and directed the crime drama “Blindspotting,” among others, will now take over the director’s chair and the script of the live-action adaptation of the anime film by Makoto Shinkai.
Lee Isaac Chung (“Minari”), who was last slated to direct, had left the project last year due to “scheduling conflicts.” This marks the second time the adaptation has lost the directing position, which was originally to be held by Marc Webb (“The Amazing Spider-Man”), who left the project for unknown reasons.
The Hollywood film, which moves the action to the United States and tells the story of a Native American woman and a Chicago boy, is being produced by Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, which is partnering with Japanese company TOHO on the project.
Storyline of the anime:
Mitsuha, a high school student living in a rural town deep in the mountains, has a dream that she is a boy living an unknown life in Tokyo. Taki, a high school student living in Tokyo, has a dream that he is a girl living in the mountains. When they realize they are swapping bodies, their encounter sets the cogs of fate in motion.
