NO NO NO... the only anime adaptation Zac must be in is Death Note  
Don't panic, yet. That is what I am telling myself right now.

TBH, it isn't that serious but apparently Zac has had maybe one convo with the producers of "Full Metal Panic" about a role in that film.

Story from Hollywood Reporter:

Mandalay Pictures has acquired theatrical rights to and will develop a big-screen version of "Full Metal Panic," a Japanese manga series that blends action, comedy and high school romance.

The property derives from writer Shoji Gatoh's series about a teenage anti-terrorist commando named Sousuke Sagara who is given the mission to protect a high-school girl with mystical powers.

"Panic," which is set in a world almost exclusively without adults, is known for mixing visceral action with wry comedy.

Zac Efron's name has surfaced in connection with "Panic," with the actor holding a conversation on the project. Efron, already a heartthrob among the teen audiences to whom the project could appeal, is also honing the action-adventure side of his career with a potential attachment to the Warner Bros. adventure "Jonny Quest."

He's next up in "17 Again," the upcoming New Line movie about an adult who goes back to high-school to rewrite his life.

Mandalay, which counts the environmental drama "Peaceable Kingdom" among its projects, has a first-look deal at Universal but has not yet set up "Panic" at a studio.

Born as a serialized novel from Gatoh and the illustrator Shiki Douji, "Panic" was developed in the early 2000's as a Japanese anime by the Asian firm Kyoto Animation and eventually also yielded a spinoff series.

An English-language version was produced and released in the U.S. on home video by ADV Films.


I will admit, the action aspect sounds kinds of interesting and makes it different then Death Note which is less violent and more psychological.

But still Zac=Kira... this must be the priority!

this intrigues me. but they don't give any explanation for their ratings so i'm not sure how they came to that score. or if it carries any weight anywhere in the industry. the awards do i think but i'm not sure about this.

okay first, I LOVE your Kira icon, and second, Fell Metal Panic is an awesome series, could be totally bamf as a movie. Doesn't mean he won't ever be i another anime adaptation again.

Frankly I'd like to see a live action Neon Genesis Evangelion or Code Geass before FMP. but I am not a movie god :(
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on April 10th, 2009 04:14 am (UTC)
I'd make you a movie god if I could, as long as you promise to put Zira in Death Note.

BTW I uploaded my manips to Deviant Art.

And I am slightly horrified that I just posted my name on my lj. :O
