Star Wars’ John Boyega Wants To Produce A Live-Action Attack On Titan Movie

Making it big a stormtrooper-turned-Resistance-fighter in Lucasfilm's new Star Wars sequel trilogy and then as a Kaiju-fighting soldier in Pacific Rim Uprising, British actor John Boyega now says that he'd love to try a hand at producing a live-action adaptation of Attack on Titan.

Boyega's been pretty busy promoting Pacific Rim uprising and the Star Wars actor just recently sat down with MTV to talk about his upcoming film. During the interview the Star Wars actor expressed interest in producing a live-action movie of the popular Japanese manga and anime series, describing what the film might look like.

"I'd definitely cast a whole bunch of Japanese actors to play the part," the actor told the publication. "It would look epic. I'd like to shoot it exactly the way they kind of mimic the artist's style in the actual anime. I love them swinging into action and you have a panning shot just following them, cruising on by as they cut off the napes. That would be real cool!"

It seems like Boyega's been eager to spread his wings after receiving his first producer credit on Pacific Rim Uprising. However, while a live-action Attack on Titan movie might seem like a great move for Boyega after working on the Pacific Rim sequel, we're not quite sure whether Hollywood would be eager to work on another anime adaptation after Rupert Sander's Ghost in the Shell and other failed anime live-action movies.

Pacific Rim: Uprising premieres March 23.
