Take Your First Look At Shimizu's Live Action KIKI's DELIVERY SERVICE

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Twitch was first to break the word that The Grudge director Shimizu Takashi had landed the task of directing a new live action adaptation of the first two novels in the series which also spawned Miyazaki's beloved animation Kiki's Delivery Service - the Miyazaki is based solely on the first novel - and now the first image from the film has arrived online via Japanese film site Eiga.com.

The picture features young figure skater turned actor Koshiba Fuka in full costume as Kiki with what I presume is the bakery where she will live and work in the background behind her. It's certainly a colorful affair and I'm more than a little curious to see how Shimizu handles the move away from horror.

    As you might have noticed had you read more carefully, Kiki is a whole book series in Japan. Miyazaki's movie adapted book one. This will be an adaptation of books one and two. It's not a remake of the Miyazaki film, in other words.

    This is a whole other kind of horror...
