Attack on Titan is the hottest anime out there, and fans are waiting for the live action movie scheduled for next summer. In the interim however, Anchor Bay Entertainment is giving the cult anime classic Kite the live action adaptation with a somewhat recognizable cast, as you can see below.
The official synopsis;
Never Underestimate a Girl with Nothing to Lose.
Based on the groundbreaking, cult classic anime, KITE tells the story of Sawa (India Eisley,”The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Underworld: Awakening), a young woman living in a corrupt society where crime and gangs terrorize the streets. When Sawa’s mother and policeman father are found victims of a grisly double homicide, she begins a ruthless pursuit for the man who murdered them. With the help of her father’s ex-partner, Karl Aker (Samuel L. Jackson, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers, Django Unchained), and a mysterious friend from her past (Callan McAuliffe, The Great Gatsby, I Am Number Four), she becomes a merciless teen assassin, blasting her way through the dark world of human trafficking only to uncover a devastating truth.
The film premiered at Fantasia Film Festival on July 18, 2014, but will be exclusively available on DirecTV on August 28, 2014 (so mark your calendars). It will also be available in select theaters, on demand, and on iTunes on October 10, 2014.
