Dan Mazeau, writer of the upcoming sequel Wrath Of The Titans, is now set to write the adaptation of Bleach for Warner Brothers.
Per Variety, “Warner Bros. has acquired live-action feature rights to Tite Kubo’s manga and anime property “Bleach,” which will be adapted by “Wrath of the Titans” scribe Dan Mazeau.
Peter Segal (“Get Smart”) will produce with an eye toward possibly directing.”
What’s sort of odd is that the wording of the Variety article treats the involvement of Warner Brothers and Peter Segal as some kind of new development, when we actually reported this almost exactly two years ago.
The film will follow, “the adventures of Ichigo, a teenager who can see ghosts. When his family is attacked by a Hollow — a malevolent lost soul — Ichigo inadvertently absorbs the power to hunt Hollows. He then dedicates his life to protecting the innocent and helping tortured souls find peace.“
