Another work of manga is being adapted into a feature film. Gentosha Comics, the Japanese publisher behind the thriller manga series "6000: Rokusen" or "6000: The Deep Sea of Madness" is said to be partnering with All Nippon Entertainment Works and Mike Medavoy, the producer of "Black Swan," to work on the film adaptation of the said series.
The film, which will be done in English, will be about an underwater research facility situated 6,000 meters below the sea somewhere in Southeast Asia, according to Variety. It is the setting of a mysterious disaster that apparently trapped and killed the crew. After its closure, a Chinese company buys the facility and tries to re-open it. It sends a new crew composed mostly of Japanese engineers and technical people to set it up and have it running again.

With different types of film adaptations abound, from animation to live-action and vice versa, it is still kind of surprising to hear that something so common as "emojis" are getting their own animated movie. The news comes after Sony Animation won a bidding war recently to do just that – make an animated feature film about emojis.
Emojis are small digital icons or images used in electronic communication such as e-mail, chat and social media, to express an idea or an emotion. Most popular of these of course is the smiley face. They were originally used mainly in Japan, but its usage eventually spread outside and became very popular. But is this popularity enough to generate interest about a movie about these icons?
A Deadline report said that Sony Pictures Animation bested two other major studios in the bid, namely Warner Brothers and Paramount. The bid was over a pitch that was prepared by Anthony Leondis, who apparently presented storyboards on what the movie would be about. According to the report, it was Sony who was gung-ho about getting the project, with express authorization from Sony chief Tom Rothman. more >>

It just got another big push after it found its director in the person of Rob McElhenney, who is better known for his role in the sitcom "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

According to a report in The Verge, Vu Bui mentioned that this was the reason why the actor was seen "hanging around MINECON in London a couple of weeks ago." McElhenney is rumored to be replacing Shawn Levy of "Night at the Museum," who was earlier attached to the project.
McElhenney confirmed the news after via his Twitter account, tagging Mojang and saying "let's do something strange and wonderful." more >>
