Manga Monday: Fullmetal Alchemist is getting the Live Action Treatment

The popular manga and anime Fullmetal Alchemist is the latest to get the live action treatment. We’ve had Attack on Titan and Hollywood is going to attempt Ghost in the Shell. Now Japan is bringing Fullmetal Alchemist to the real world. This could be a complicated one to translate into live action. Edward’s arm and leg have to look believable and the homunculus could be a challenge to get looking right.



Yamada Ryosuke from the popular idol group Hey!Say!JUMP has been cast to take on the lead role of Edward.
